Poland may import significant quantities of LNG from the US, said the government’s proxy for strategic energy infrastructure Piotr Naimski.
Currently, the LNG terminal in Świnoujście receives 3 billion cubic meters of LNG per year from long-term deals, and with its capacity planned to be expanded to 7.5 billion cubic meters per year, there’s room for more deliveries.
“It’s easy to see that there’s room for other spot or medium-term deals, and PGNiG is at the moment talking to US companies and there is a good chance that it will end in a deal,” Naimski added.
He explained, however, that even if a deal is signed, it will take several years for the deliveries to be sent to Poland, as most of the LNG shipping infrastructure on the US east coast is under construction.
Poland received its first spot shipment of the US LNG back in June.
