“The contract signed with Cheniere is the first opening of the implementation of energy security; I think that this will be followed by other contracts,” said Marek Gróbarczyk, the Minister of Maritime Economy on Wednesday.
On 26 July in the Świnoujście gas port, PGNiG received the first transport of American LNG from a long-term contract under a long-term agreement with Cheniere.
Long-term agreement with Cheniere Energy Inc.
– 24-year contract – for the purchase of liquefied natural gas from the USA was signed on November 8th last year. In 2019-2022, the total volume of supplies is to amount to approx. 0.52 million tonnes of LNG, i.e. approx. 0.7 billion cubic metres of gas after regasification.
In the years 2023-2042, the total import volume is to reach approx. 29 million tonnes (approx. 39 billion cubic metres after regasification). This means that from 2023 onwards, the total import volume will reach approx. 29 million tonnes (approx. 39 billion cubic metres after regasification). Each year, PGNiG will buy about 1.45 million tonnes of LNG (about 1.95 billion cubic metres of gas after regasification).
Gróbarczyk was asked in TVP INFO whether, in connection with the visit of the President of the United States Donald Trump to Poland, “new elements” are planned as regards the supply of liquefied natural gas to Poland.
“I think that this contract, which was signed with Cheniere for 24 years, with a large volume of supplies, is as if the first opening of the implementation of this energy security, especially the cutting of supplies from the East. – the Grave Encounter. “I think that this will be followed by other contracts, because in the United States this takes place mainly in the business sphere, because it is not Donald Trump who decides how it looks like”. – he said.
Of course we know that without political support nothing will work, but in the end it will be on the basis of business negotiations – he added.
