Poland’s first LNG regasification terminal in the port of Swinoujscie has resumed operations after powerful winds hammered the facility on Sunday causing damage to a pipeline located on top of one of the terminal’s tanks.

The pipeline used for monitoring the gas level in one of the tanks sustained damage and was shut down early Sunday after a gantry fell on it causing a small release of gas into the atmosphere.

Situation at the LNG import terminal has been brought under control and operations have been restored, according to the operator, Gaz-System.

“The regasification of liquefied natural gas and transmission of gas to the domestic transmission system were resumed on Sunday evening,” a Gaz-System spokesperson told LNG World News on Monday.

“All the operational parameters of the system are being constantly monitored. There is no threat to life or health of Świnoujście residents or employees of the LNG terminal,” the spokesperson said.

Works are underway to resume the full functionality of the system.

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.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
