Polish Oil & Gas Company (PGNiG) has announced that it is set to receive the first delivery of US LNG into Poland.
The first cargo of LNG from Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Louisiana is set to arrive at the President Lech Kaczynski LNG Terminal in the first half of June.
Piotr WoLniak, President of PGNiG Management Board, said: “This is a historic moment for PGNiG. North America is becoming the next region for acquiring this strategic commodity after Middle East and Norway. We consistently fulfill our strategy of diversifying gas deliveries to Poland. We build safe and competitive gas market for the Polish economy […] A future delivery from the USA proves that Poland can become a gateway to Central and Eastern Europe for American LNG. This transaction is a great success of PGNiG's London office which was opened in February 2017.”
Jack Fusco, President and CEO of Cheniere, added: “Delivering this cargo from Cheniere to Poland demonstrates the continued demand for US LNG and for Cheniere’s full-service model that includes the delivery of LNG directly to customers […] PGNiG has been an excellent partner in this purchase, and Cheniere is pleased to support Poland accessing LNG.”
