The Polish energy company PGNiG has signed a contract for the supply of liquefied natural gas from the United States. This is stated in a press release of the company, which was received on Tuesday in TASS.
This is the first contract for the supply of liquefied gas to the USA from Poland, which will become an alternative to the purchase of this raw material from Russia, the Polish company said. The deal is designed for five years, the contract is not reported by the company.
“This agreement is the first of its kind in the portfolio of medium-term contracts planned for PGNiG on the supply of liquefied gas,” said PGNiG Chairman Piotr Wozniak. “Most of this liquefied natural gas will be destined for the Polish and other Central European markets to improve the energy security of this region, which historically was dominated by Russian gas.”
PGNiG has signed a contract for the supply of liquefied gas with the company Centrica LNG, a division of the same British energy company. Deliveries will be made from the US terminal Sabine Pass in Port Arthur (Texas) on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and taken at the terminal in the Polish port town of Swinoujscie.
