Al Gattara LNG carrier at the Swinoujscie facility (Image courtesy of Polskie LNG) Poland’s sole liquefied natural gas facility in Swinoujscie has received another shipment of LNG as the country is looking to further boost imports of the fuel. The arrival of Nakilat’s 217,000-cbm Q-Flex LNG carrier Al Gattara on Thursday marks the 95th delivery to the Swinoujscie facility on the Baltic Sea. Poland has significantly increased LNG purchases via its terminal in Swinoujscie following PGNiG deals with Qatargas and US player Cheniere. The delivery is part of a long-term deal between Poland’s dominant gas firm PGNiG and LNG producing giant Qatargas.center_img PGNiG is in charge for all the supplies coming to the import terminal operated by Gaz-System’s unit Polskie LNG. Poland’s first LNG terminal in Swinoujscie is currently undergoing a capacity expansion but there are also plans to install a floating storage regasification unit in the Gdansk Bay. The move is a part of reducing the country’s decades-old reliance on Russian pipeline gas but also cutting dependence on coal. The terminal would be the first such facility in Poland, which could help increase the use of LNG as a fuel in both maritime and road transport.last_img read more
