A NEW pipeline designed to connect oil transmission systems in Slovakia and Austria will cross either the environs of Bratislava or the Small Carpathians mountain range.

A NEW pipeline designed to connect oil transmission systems in Slovakia and Austria will cross either the environs of Bratislava or the Small Carpathians mountain range.

The Economy Ministry unveiled 10 potential routes for the interconnection, planned as part of either the so-called Carpathian Corridor or the City Corridor, the SITA newswire reported.

The Slovak pipeline operator, Transpetrol, plans to construct the pipeline in cooperation with its Austrian partner, OMV, through a joint venture called JV BSP Bratislava-Schwechat Pipeline GmbH.

Experts in both countries have agreed to several possible routes that will be further examined through impact studies and analyses, the Economy Ministry wrote in an information paper reporting on the progress of the interconnection of the Druzhba pipeline with the Austrian refinery in Schwechat.

If the companies pick the Carpathian Corridor, the pipelines would be connected somewhere between Marchegg and Záhorská Ves.

The City Corridor proposes a connection in the surroundings of Jarovce-Kittsee or Petržalka-Kittsee, near Veľký Biel. The latter route would transit the Slovak capital.

The length of the pipeline will range between 81 and 152 kilometres depending on the exact route chosen and the ministry estimated the cost will range from €70 to €112 million.
