On Friday, a tanker carrying LNG left Qatar-based Ras Laffan port and is heading to the LNG terminal in Świnoujście, Poland, according to unofficial information gathered by the Polish Press Agency (PAP). The vessel is to reach the Polish port on December 11.
Over 200,000 cubic meters of fuel will be transpoerted to Poland by Qatargas. Just a few days ago, PAP reported that following an audit of the terminal in Świnoujście, the Qatar-based company has confirmed that the facility is ready to receive the first batch of liquefied gas in mid-December.
Świnoujście LNG terminal is a liquefied natural gas import terminal, which features an unloading jetty for large LNG tankers, two storage tanks and a regasification train. The terminal’s initial regasification capacity will be 5 billion cubic meters per annum.
The project is worth PLN 3.5 billion and is Poland’s flagship investment aimed at diversifying gas supplies, reducing dependence on Russia.
