The segment’s environmental and climate footprint comes primarily from methane leaks that occur during natural gas transmission operations. In order to prevent the leaks, the PGNiG Group planują, companies plan, as in the case of the Exploration and Production and Trade and Storage segments, to first perform accurate monitoring of the emissions and, based on that, design appropriate measures to reduce the emissions to the largest extent possible.
Furthermore, in connection with the plan to expand the PGNiG Group’s product range with zero and low emission gases, PSG will explore the possibility of adapting the existing distribution infrastructure to transport hydrogen and biomethane and, alternatively, analyse the cost of building new pipelines dedicated to hydrogen and biomethane. Projects relating to these plans are in the research and development phase. The R&D work is conducted by the PGNiG Group’s Central Measurement and Testing Laboratory.
