WKB has advised OGP Gaz-System SA on its contractor selection procedure and the conclusion of an agreement with Ramboll Danmark A/S, the contractor responsible for carrying out analytical, research, and design work necessary to obtain permits for the construction of the Baltic Pipe. The agreement was signed on August 3, 2017.

The Baltic Pipe is an investment project aimed at creating a new gas supply corridor in the European market allowing for the transportation of gas directly from fields in Norway to the Danish and Polish markets, as well as to customers in neighboring markets. The Baltic Pipe will also enable the supply of gas from Poland to the Danish and Swedish markets.

According to WKB, "the scope of work under the agreement covers geophysical, geotechnical, and environmental investigations, including obtaining the permits necessary to build the pipeline. Ramboll Danmark will be responsible for, among other things, developing procedures, agreements and consultation processes required by law, and for drafting the project and tender documentation governing the commencement and conduct of the construction work."

WKB provided legal advice alongside law firms from Denmark, Sweden, and Germany. The firm's team consisted of Senior Partner Bartlomiej Jankowski, Counsel Anna Flaga-Martynek, Senior Associate Tomasz Pleskot, and Associate Maciej Gniewosz.
