He added that Copenhagen’s decision to revoke the permit for the pipeline to cross overland a stretch of Danish territory should fail to stop the pipeline from being finished on time.

“I am convinced that this project... will be completed within the foreseen deadline,” Przydacz said. He also praised the European Commission for its readiness to help overcome any problems following Denmark’s decision.

With construction overseen by the Danish gas and electricity operator Energinet and the Polish gas operator Gaz-System, the Baltic Pipe will bring natural gas from the Norwegian sector of the North Sea to Poland.
