The first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has reached the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Swinoujscie, pipeline operator Gaz-System announced on Monday.
There have been 11 deliveries since the launch of the terminal in 2015. Swinoujscie has already recieved more than 2 million cubic meters of liquefied natural gas. On Saturday, a ship with a length of 320 meters and width of 50 meters provided about 210,000 cubic meters of LNG.
Gaz-System announced that another ship will arrive at Swinoujscie next month.
The terminal at Swinoujscie has a capacity of 5 billion cubic meters year, which is enough to satisfy a third of demand in Poland. However, there have been calls for its expansion to 7.5 billion cubic meters. The LNG terminal is built in such a way that, if necessary, its regasification capacity can be increased to 10 billion cubic meters annually.
