The article shortly presents in the first part the transit system of Slovakia, through that the natural gas flows to Czech Republic, Austria and Germany. The compressor station KS1 – Veľké Kapušany is also described. The throughput of this compressor station plays an important role, because this station is the entry to the transit system of the Slovak Republic. In the second part of the presentation shown are the results from the software application for finding the best combination of the aggregates used in gas transport. The theoretical foundation of the change of the temperature distribution around the pipeline and its impact upon the environment is described in the present paper.
