Polish energy group Orlen will finally complete the oil pipeline from Odesa to Gdansk.

The new oil pipeline will connect the ports of Odesa in Ukraine and the ports of Gdansk in Poland. According to TVP.info, Orlen’s management has returned to the once-suspended Odesa-Brody-Plock-Gdansk oil pipeline project. In 2004, Poland and Ukraine created a joint venture to implement this project. Russia, ruled by President Putin, wanted to make Europe dependent on its country’s raw materials and took measures to prevent the Ukraine-Poland oil pipeline project from being completed. In a few years, the project was revived by the then president of Poland, Lech Kaczyński. However, after he died in 2010, the cabinet of then Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk decided to renew relations with Russia. The plan to build the oil pipeline began to be questioned, with several ministers questioning its profitability. The project was finally stopped at the end of 2013. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Warsaw began to consider reviving the oil pipeline plan linking Ukraine and Poland.
