The construction on Poland’s first LNG terminal being built in Świnoujście is almost complete and it is expected to be commissioned by the end of this year.
The start-up of the LNG terminal, operated by Gaz-System’s unit Polskie LNG, has been delayed for more than a year with the original date which was set for the end of June last year.
In the first stage of operation, the LNG import terminal will enable the regasification of 5 Bcm of natural gas annually.
Polskie LNG has earlier this year signed a contract with Tractebel Engineering to conduct a feasibility study for the expansion of the LNG terminal involving the construction of a third storage tank and accompanying investment.
The expansion would include adding LNG reloading service for smaller vessels, through which the LNG terminal could become a reloading depot for smaller installations operating in the region, as well as for bunkering vessels with LNG.
