Poland mulls 2nd FSRU

Gas demand in the Czech Republic and Slovakia could justify the project, Poland's government has said

Poland mulls 2nd FSRU

Warsaw, May 31 - Neftegaz.RU. Poland may install a 2nd floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) next to an already planned facility in Gdansk, to accommodate LNG purchases by the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Polish climate minister Anna Moskwa told local media on May 30.

Poland has an existing 6.2 bln m3/year LNG regasification terminal in Swinoujscie that is undergoing an expansion to bring its capacity to 8.3 bln m3/yr by 2023.
It also plans to bring on stream a 6.1 bln m3/yr FSRU in Gdansk in 2025.
Moskwa said:
  • Having had its Russian gas deliveries suspended last month, Poland is looking to fast-track these projects, and with the Czech Republic and Slovakia also vying for alternatives to Russian supply, there may be justification for a 2nd FSRU, Moskwa said.
  • Different options can be considered,
  • We could open another FSRU and charter another vessel but this would be a responsibility of our partners
The 2nd FSRU could have a capacity of 6 or 12 bln m3/yr, Moskwa said, depending on demand from its neighbours.
Poland is also awaiting the launch this October of the Baltic Pipe, which will enable it to access Norwegian pipeline gas supply.
