Cargoes from Qatar are delivered under a 20-year contract Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo (PGNiG), Polish oil and gas company, serving as an intermediary for the purposes of LNG supplies to the terminal has in place with Qatargas.

The terminal, Poland’s flagship project to diversify gas supplies and reduce dependence on pipeline imports from Russia, is operated by Polskie LNG, a unit of Gaz-System.

Earlier this month, the facility received its first cargo of liquefied natural gas from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility in the United States.

Gaz-System has earlier this year made a decision to expand the plant’s capacity to 7.5 billion cubic meters per year instead of the current 5 bcm/y.
