Description of transmission system

The gas transmission system of the Republic of Croatia consists of international, main, regional and connecting gas pipelines and the facilities on the gas pipelines with the operating pressure of 75 and 50 bar, as well as the measuring-reduction stations (MRS) of different capacities. By the existing structure and territorial expansion of the gas transmission system the technical-technological aspects are harmonized with needs of the transmission system users, for the purpose of providing secure and reliable transmission and delivery of gas, along with optimization of maintenance and operation costs.

Preconditions for secure and reliable gas transmission and fulfilment of contractual liabilities towards the transport service users have been provided by continuous transmission system supervision, remote and local management of technological facilities, proper and timely preparation of the system for the special operating conditions, analysis of system conditions, forecasting system conduct, timely forward of information on the system status as well as the status of equipment and system elements, physical supervision of technological facilities and their systematic, preventive and corrective maintenance.
The transmission system of the Republic of Croatia operated by the transmission system operator Plinacro Ltd consists of the following:
