Poland’s natural gas import from Germany will increase from 3.2 billion cubic meters (bcm) to 5.5 bcm, due to the extension of the Włocławek entry point, gas grid operator Gaz-System said in a press statement.
“The possibility of importing gas from the west using the virtual reverse on the Yamal pipeline in the frame of uninterrupted service increased by 3.2 bcm [and] enables import of some 5.5 bcm of gas to Poland . . . solely through the Mallnow reverse [entry point],” Gaz-System said in a press release.
Warsaw is also planning to open an LNG terminal later this year on the Baltic Sea to further ease reliance on Russian imports.
Consumption of gas in Poland amounts around 16 bcm annually and the major provider is Russia’s Gazprom.
