The Sarmatia International Pipeline Company (ICC) will hold for the European Commission (EC) a presentation of Brody-Plotsk pipeline (Adam's gate) in Brussels on June 18, ICC director Sergei Skripka told Trend on Thursday.

He said the presentation will be held at the invitation of the EC.

Sarmatia is invited on June 18 by the European Commission to present the project at the seventh meeting of the platform on energy security, operating under the Eastern Partnership, Skripka said.

A study on the future of the pipeline route selection of Brody-Plotsk pipeline has been completed. The length of the route will be 377 kilometers, 120 kilometers of which will be constructed on the territory of Ukraine, 257 kilometers - in Poland.

The Brody-Plotsk oil pipeline project was named as a priority in the EU Infrastructure and Environment Operational Programme. About 495 million zlotys (about 177 million euro) were allocated to the project under the programme.

Sarmatia was created by Ukrtransnafta and the Polish PERN Przyjazn company on July 12, 2004 to attract investments to design and complete the Odessa-Brody oil pipeline to Plotsk.

The Odessa-Brody oil transportation project sought to diversify oil supplies to Ukrainian refineries and develop the country's transit potential. The pipeline's construction was completed in May 2002. Its trunk has a length of 674 kilometres, with a pipe diameter of 1,020 millimetres. The pipeline's and terminal's capacity provided 9-14 million tons per year during the first stage.
