Slovakia says gas pipeline to Poland almost finished, will help diversification

April 22 (Reuters) - A pipeline connecting Slovakia to Poland which will allow landlocked Slovakia to tap LNG supplies is nearly complete and functional tests will start in July, Slovak Deputy Energy Minister Karol Galek said on Friday.

Galek said in a statement the pipeline would have a 5.1 billion cubic metres annual capacity in the direction of Slovakia and 6.1 billion cubic metres capacity to Poland.

“We may fill storage for the upcoming winter season also from this direction,” Galek said. (Reporting by Jan Lopatka in Prague; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
