PGNiG took in 60 per cent more LNG cargoes in H1 this year than in H1 2021

In the first half of 2022. PGNiG accepted 29 cargoes of liquefied natural gas, 26 of them in Swinoujscie, more than 60 per cent more than in the same period last year, when the number of cargoes reached 18, PGNiG said on Friday.

Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo (PGNiG) took delivery of six shipments of liquefied natural gas at the Swinoujscie terminal and two shipments at the Klaipeda terminal in Lithuania in June. In the entire first half of 2022. PGNiG took delivery of 29 cargoes of liquefied natural gas, 26 of them at Swinoujscie. This is more than 60 per cent more than in the same period last year, when the number of cargoes reached 18, the company said on Friday.

It added that on Thursday, 30 June, a methane carrier with a cargo of LNG ordered by PGNiG Group arrived in Klaipeda. This is the second shipment of liquefied natural gas for PGNiG to arrive at the Lithuanian gas port this month. This means that together with the cargoes delivered to the President Lech Kaczyński terminal in Świnoujście, PGNiG took delivery of as many as eight ships filled with LNG in June.

– The intensification of LNG imports is PGNiG’s response to the continuing crisis on the European gas market, primarily related to the reduction of fuel supplies from Russia. It is, inter alia, thanks to the increase in the number of LNG cargoes received that the company was able to inject domestic gas storage facilities still during the heating season, and also despite Gazprom’s discontinuation of the Yamal contract and the suspension of supplies to PGNiG from 27 April 2022. – PGNiG CEO Iwona Waksmundzka-Olejniczak emphasised.

PGNiG stressed that the increase in LNG supplies was possible thanks to, among other things, the expansion of the Swinoujscie terminal, where PGNiG’s reserved regasification capacity increased from this year to 6.2 bcm of gas per year, over 1 bcm more than before. It was pointed out that the reservation of regasification capacity at the floating terminal in Lithuania’s Klaipeda, through which PGNiG has so far imported three cargoes, was also important.

It was recalled in the communiqué that thanks to the launch of the Poland-Lithuania gas pipeline in May, LNG received in Klaipeda can be sent to Poland after regasification. This allows PGNiG to further diversify the directions of its gas supply.

– The liquefied natural gas, which was delivered for PGNiG to Klaipeda on 30 June this year on board the methane carrier Arctic Princess, came from Norway. In turn, the day before, a shipment of gas from the United States arrived in Swinoujscie, brought by a single
