The 20th delivery of LNG to Poland

Nearly 4 million m3 of liquid natural gas – this is the amount of the raw material that has been received in the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal by far, counting as of the first delivery carried out in December 2015. On Saturday, September 9, another LNG carrier docked at the loading berth of the LNG Terminal.

It has been the twentieth LNG delivery and the fourth spot cargo, i.e. not listed in the annual framework call schedule, but approved in compliance with terms and conditions set out in a separate agreement concluded between the LNG supplier and the terminal user.

- It has been the second time in the history of LNG import into Poland, that we hosted the LNG carrier equipped in spherical tanks of the “Moss” type - explains Tomasz Pietrasieński, the Spokesperson for GAZ SYSTEM.  Świnoujście is usually visited by so called Q-flexes, that carry membrane tanks, with the shape resembling the shape of the hull.

This type the „Moss”-type LNG carrier brought around 138 thousand m3 of liquid natural gas. Following regasification, the process meant to transform the state of the substance, from liquid into gaseous, the national transmission system will be supplied with over 82 million Nm3 of gas. In total, the commercial deliveries (the first two had been partially provided for cooling and start-up of the installation) have reached more than 2 billion Nm3.

Further expansion of the domestic transmission system, including construction of new gas pipelines being part of the North-South Gas Corridor, as well as construction of interconnections with Lithuania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, will enhance Poland’s energy security and contribute considerably to the development of the European transmission system.
In 2009-2015, GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. completed an investment plan consisting in the construction of over 1,200 km of new gas transmission lines in north-western and central Poland. The projects implemented by the company and the physical and virtual reversal on the Yamal pipeline have translated into a significant increase in technical import opportunities on routes other than from the East.
