Baltic Connector Oy was established to implement the Finnish part of the Balticconnector gas pipeline project between Finland and Estonia. The project will enable the interconnection of the Baltic and Finnish gas markets and their integration with the EU’s common energy market. It will also improve energy security by diversifying gas distribution channels, and promote security of supply in Finland and the Baltic Sea region, providing Finland with access to underground gas storage in Latvia. Furthermore, the Balticconnector gas pipeline will facilitate the opening up of the Finnish gas market. The completion of Balticconnector is scheduled for 2020.

The Balticconnector project will comprise the offshore pipeline between Inkoo in Finland and Paldiski in Estonia, and the Finnish and Estonian onshore pipelines that will link Balticconnector to the existing gas transmission networks in these countries. The route covers 22 kilometres of onshore pipeline in Finland, 77 kilometres of offshore pipeline, and 50 kilometres of onshore pipeline in Estonia. Compressor stations will be built in Finland and Estonia. The pipeline is bi-directional, enabling the transmission of 7.2 million cubic metres of gas per day.

Baltic Connector Oy and the Estonian Elering As signed a cooperation agreement on 17 October 2016 concerning the construction of a gas interconnector between Estonia and Finland. Each company will be responsible for building its onshore section separately. The European Commission has granted the project EUR 187.5 million from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for Energy as investment aid. The EU co-financing will cover 75 per cent of the building costs of the pipeline, amounting to EUR 250 million. The European Commission, Baltic Connector Oy and Elering AS signed the grant agreement on the EU co-financing in Brussels on 21 October 2016. The Finnish government will also provide Baltic Connector Oy with funds amounting to EUR 30 million.

As part of the Energy Union Strategy, the EU is committed to building missing links and energy infrastructures, and ensuring that each Member State has access to several sources of gas. Integrating the Baltic Sea region with the rest of the EU’s gas system is one of the Commission's top priorities.
