Information of PGNiG SA and GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. on gas supply to Poland

Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo SA (PGNiG SA) and Gas Transmission Operator GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. inform that gas was supplied to Poland from the East in the period from 28 November 2014 to 12 December 2014 in a stable manner without prejudice to the safe operation of the Polish transmission system. All final gas recipients in Poland receive gas they demand.

At entry points at the eastern border, PGNiG SA still does not receive full gas quantities ordered from the Russian supplier under the binding agreement.

Demand for natural gas in recent two weeks has dropped to approximately 55 million m3/day on the average. System is balanced with import supplies, domestic output and underground gas warehouses. At present, the gas warehouses contain approximately 2.28 billion m3.

If the situation of gas supply to Poland changes, another press release will be published.

GAZ-SYSTEM is a strategic company for the Polish economy. It is responsible for the transmission of natural gas, manages the most important gas pipelines in Poland and owns the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.

As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM is constructing over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in the western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Over a dozen new gas pipelines are under construction within the North-South Gas Corridor and the compressor station in Kędzierzyn Koźle, as well as interconnections with Lithuania and Slovakia. Onshore gas pipelines are planned to connect the planned FSRU floating terminal in the Gulf of Gdansk with the national transmission system. The LNG Terminal in Świnoujście is also being extended, as a result of which the regasification capacity of this facility will be increased by more than a half.

The company is also implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in the country - the Baltic Pipe project which consists in the construction of a two-way offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark, expansion of the local transmission network and three gas compressor stations.
