For obvious reasons, energy resources are now at a premium – figuratively, as a scarce commodity (low stocks in many countries, especially in Europe) and literally, due to rising market prices. The supply of coal, oil or gas is therefore of great interest.
We checked what ships with energy resources are currently heading to Poland. The list contains mainly ships declaring Gdynia, Gdansk, Szczecin or Swinoujscie as their current ports of destination.
The list does not include, e.g. vessels that will leave part of their cargo in another port (e.g. coal from Australia in a port in the ARA region) or have already unloaded it there and will only depart for Poland. However, even if the actual, complete, and up-to-date list of vessels with raw energy materials destined for unloading in Polish ports differs from our list, it differs only slightly.
It should also be borne in mind that not every ship unloaded in a Polish port carries cargo for a Polish recipient. For example, even batches of coal that fill all holds may be destined for a recipient in the Czech Republic or Slovakia. Therefore, although we omit possible smaller batches of liquid fuels (delivered by smaller vessels – these are usually oil products, not crude oil) in our list, we also do not include smaller batches of coal.
Let us add that the Gdansk fuel terminal also recently took delivery of Russian oil delivered from the port of Ust-Luga, where it was loaded on 24-25 February. This batch of cargo was unloaded from the Aframax tanker Gagarin Prospekt at the Naftoport terminal on 27-28 February.
