The share of LPG from Russia in the entire domestic market exceeds 60 percent (1,300,000 tonnes per year) and it will take at least several months to change the directions of supplies. In particular, the infrastructure needs to be expanded: the number of rail and sea terminals in Poland, significantly increasing the fleet of rail tankers, and making the terminal in the Port of Gdansk available to all LPG operators. The LPG industry will develop the scope of gas supplies from ARA ports (Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp) – which, however, will increase liquid gas prices for consumers.

"We are in talks with new suppliers from other geographies about hiring sufficient numbers in hundreds of rail tankers to deliver gas from the western direction to Poland. We are preparing as much as possible by the end of the year our infrastructure for the change of the direction of supply," Paweł Bielski, President of the Polish Chamber of Liquid Gas (PIGP), said.

"All this is dictated by the necessity to secure the market, to secure the supplies – so that each of our consumers may count on gas also after December this year. It is possible to shift logistics from the eastern to the western direction in terms of LPG supplies – but it is a difficult task, therefore we need time, which was declared by the government. According to the decision of the Seimas, we will be ready with new logistics and infrastructure to completely cut off LPG supplies from Russia at the end of 2022," he added.
