Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: Sovereignty, solidarity and competitiveness are key issues applying to the energy sector in Poland

Contracts for the supply of gas from outside and for its extraction in Poland, combined with the extension of the gas network, are the great programme of the Polish energy industry said the Prime Minister during the announcement of contracts for the purchase of gas from the United States.

We have taken decisive action to acquire gas from various parts of the world, with a particular focus on the United States and Norway said the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. As he added, to this end, we create gas connections, inter alia, the so-called Baltic Gas Pipeline and we increase the gas intake capacity by the terminal in Świnoujście.

The Prime Minister noted that a very important element in the development of the Polish energy was also the increased gas extraction in Poland, therefore we have started such wide-ranging research programme of extractable resources.

The energy programme will apply to all voivodeships and will lead to increasing the possibility of distributing gas to most gminas that are not yet connected to the gas network today stressed the Head of Government.

We show that through the extraction, diversification of supply sources and creation of new networks to supply gas to the country, the energy programme of our government is credible finally added Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

The first long-term contracts in Central Europe for the supply of liquefied natural gas from the USA were signed between PGNiG and Venture Global LNG.

The contracts will guarantee a total of 2 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) annually, which after regasification gives approximately 2.7 billion m³ of natural gas and this, depending on the volume of LNG tankers used for transport, corresponds to more than 25 loads a year.
