Ukraine itself has no LNG import capabilities, but can import regasified LNG via pipeline from the Polish terminal.
This is the 2nd gas delivery to Ukraine made by PGNiG and ERU based on the purchase of American LNG.
The 1st one took place over 2 years ago.
Paweł Majewski, CEO of PGNiG, said:
- This is yet another delivery of American LNG to Ukraine made by PGNiG in cooperation with ERU, which is our strategic trading partner on the Ukrainian market
- Good relations built over the years are particularly important now, at a time of great turbulence on the gas market in Europe
- Thanks to the investments in gas infrastructure carried out in Poland in recent years, we can strengthen the energy security of the region by ensuring our customers access to diversified sources of natural gas and the ability to choose the best offer on the market
In August 2021 PGNiG and ERU commenced E&P operations in Ukraine thorough their joint venture Karpatgazvydobuvannya, which holds a licence to explore and produce hydrocarbons in western part of the Lviv Oblast.
