Warsaw, 15 March - Neftegaz.RU. Polish gas grid and LNG terminal operator Gaz-System is interested in cooperating with Australian companies in the liquefied natural gas sector.
«Our goal is to attract more Australian companies to work with Gaz-System, particularly in the field of LNG technology and construction of gas pipelines, including subsea pipelines,» Gaz-System’s CEO Tomasz Stępien said in a statement.
Gaz-System is currently developing several gas and LNG projects that, according to the company, have the potential to change the gas market in Central and Eastern Europe. The projects include the Northern Gate concept, the Baltic Pipe Program as well as the expansion of Poland’s 1st LNG terminal in Świnoujście.
Gaz System operates the LNG facility through its unit Polskie LNG. The expansion activities include boosting regasification capacities from 5 bcm to 7.5 bcm of natural gas annually, building the 2nd LNG jetty as well as adding LNG bunkering infrastructure.
«There is a large number of investment-related challenges we are going to face. We would like to invite Australian companies to collaborate with us. We encourage Australian companies to take part in tenders related both to the LNG terminal and the construction of the new gas pipelines», Stępień said.
