First LNG Cargo Arrives in Polish Terminal in Świnoujście
“The Świnoujście LNG receiving terminal is a clear manifestation of Poland’s vision and commitment to ensure diversified, reliable and secure supplies of LNG and natural gas” Qatargas’ Chief Executive Officer, Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani commented on Friday.
He also explained that Poland represents a new market for Qatargas’ premium LNG.
“The Receiving Terminal’s potential makes us an important player in the area of energy independence of the whole region. We provide fuel security for Poland and the possibility to diversify the deliveries to other European states, which, by connecting their transfer systems, will facilitate establishing a competitive gas market. Poland is entering a group of independent, safe and modern countries” Jan Chadam, the President of Gaz-System and Polskie LNG, argued.
PGNiG (Polish Oil & Gas) provided its assistance as an intermediary in LNG delivery according to the agreement with the Polskie LNG. The LNG cargo is the first of two planned cargoes that will be supplied by Qatargas for the cool-down and commissioning of the Polish LNG Receiving Terminal.
