Project of Common Interest

The Projects of common interest (abbreviated PCI) are key infrastructure investments, which will help member states of the European Union to integrate their energy markets, create the conditions for diversification of energy supply sources and directions and will end the energy isolation that still occurs in some countries. They will also allow for the adjustment of electricity grids for the transmission of rising volumes of electric energy produced from renewable energy sources, thereby contributing to the reduction of CO₂ emissions.

The first list of PCI projects was approved by the European Commission and published on 14 October 2013. It contained 248 investments related to the construction and modernisation of electricity grids, gas and oil pipelines, natural gas and oil storage warehouses and transhipment terminals, including those for LNG.

EU regulations provide for updating the PCI list every two years. In accordance with these regulations, the lists were verified in 2015 and 2017. Based on the results of the verification, the Brody-Adamowo oil pipeline construction project was maintained on the PCI list.

The Projects were selected by the regional groups according to the criteria defined in the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council (EU) No. 347/2013 of 17 April 2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure.

The project of construction of the Brody-Adamowo oil pipeline is placed on the PCI list under number 9.1., among the priority connecting corridors for oil supply in Central and Eastern Europe.

Projects of common interest should be implemented as soon as possible and should be monitored and assessed in detail, simultaneously maintaining a minimal level of administrative burden for their promoters. Therefore, administrative support in the scope of obtaining necessary decisions and permits is ensured for these projects. Projects related to electricity and gas infrastructure may also apply for financial support within the framework of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) instrument. The oil projects, to which the Brody-Adamowo oil pipeline project belongs, are not eligible for financial support from CEF.

Detailed information on the Brody-Adamowo oil pipeline project can be found in the information brochure (download PDF file) and on the website of the project.
