Warsaw, January 24 - Neftegaz.RU. On Sunday, January 27th, Polish PGNiG will receive another load of LNG. It will be the 50th delivery to the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście. Thus the total LNG volume purchased so far by PGNiG will amount to approximately 5.7 bcm after regasification.
«Spot transactions is the task of our office in London. Our traders search for favorable market opportunities, thus completing our LNG portfolio. LNG is significantly rising in the PGNiG import structure. In 2018, its share has already exceeded 20 %, and our ambitions for 2019 aim even higher,» said Maciej Woźniak, VP of PGNiG Management Board for Trade.
Including Naturgy spot delivery PGNiG will have imported over 4.2 million tonnes of LNG to Poland, which after regasification represents approximately 5.7 bcm. Most of LNG that undergoes regasification goes to the Polish pipeline network, from where it reaches households, industry, heat and power plants, and is also exported to the Ukrainian market.
With the help of regasification stations – operating similarly to LNG terminal, but on a smaller scale – the gas is transferred to recipients. Tank trucks have delivered LNG from Świnoujście as far as Bulgaria and Estonia.
