Poland has received its first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility in the US.

As previously reported by LNG World News, the first US cargo was delivered aboard the 162,000-cbm Clean Ocean.

The LNG tanker arrived at the Lech Kaczyński LNG terminal in Świnoujście on Wednesday and left the facility on Thursday after discharging its cargo, shipping data shows.

According to Polish Gas and Oil Company (PGNiG), that bought the spot cargo from Cheniere, this was the first delivery of US LNG to Central and Eastern Europe.

The shipment from the US is also the second spot contract for PGNiG after the delivery from Statoil’s Hammerfest LNG plant in Norway in June 2016.

PGNiG said in a statement it plans to conclude more spot agreements through its recently opened LNG trading office in London. The next spot delivery is planned for July.

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

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.
