PGNiG has purchased LNG from Norway. The cargo will be delivered by Statoil under a spot contract.
The ‘Arctic Discoverer’ LNG tanker will arrive at the President Lech Kaczynski LNG terminal in Swinoujscie on 9 September. The vessel is carrying a load of approximately 140 000 m3 of LNG.
“PGNiG’s trading office in London has become fully operational. It allows for monitoring the LNG market, instantly seizing opportunities and taking advantage of attractive offers. Thanks to spot deliveries we can profitably complement our portfolio of gas supplies,” commented Piotr Wozniak, President of the Management Board at PGNiG SA. “Norwegians have been proven partners not only at cooperating on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, but also at LNG contracts,” he added.
The delivery from Norway will be a second spot supply from the country that will arrive to Poland. Two other spot deliveries have come from the USA and Qatar.
Between June 2016 and August 2017, Poland has received almost 2.1 billion m3 of natural gas following regasification (originating from about 3.5 million m3 of LNG). In 2018, Poland will receive about 2.9 billion m3 due to a long-term contract between PGNiG and Qatargas.
