Poland is ready to reduce purchases of Russian gas in exchange for a new alternative

Long-term contracts for the supply of American LNG enable Poland to maneuver in the purchase of Russian gas.


Poland is ready to reduce purchases of Russian gas in exchange for a new alternative


At the conference, the head of the Polish energy company PGNIG, Petr Woняniak, said that Poland will try to compensate for the increase in prices for Russian pipe gas by supplying LNG from the United States.

According to Vozhnyak, “scissors” are currently observed in the difference between the price of gas under the Yamal contract and its price at the auction, so PGNIG decided to smooth this trend by increasing purchases of US LNG.

At the same time, the deputy chairman of the board, Maciej Woняniak, said that next year the company intends to increase the number of LNG tankers from the United States to 36, and thus minimize the amount of Russian gas that Poland takes over the contract.

Poland is currently buying Russian gas under a contract signed with Gaprom in 1996. The contract expires in 2022.

Recall that earlier the State Secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office and the Plenipotentiary of the Government of Poland for strategic energy infrastructure, Petr Naimsky, said that after laying the “Baltic Pipe” from Norway and expanding the gas terminal in Swinoujscie, Poland will get rid of the “dictate from Russia” which she "faced decades".

    Nobody forces to buy Russian gas. I think that in 2022 Poland will face the same problems as Ukraine. The gas market for it will decrease significantly.

    Oh well. Only if in your dreams.
    One small but proud country also abandoned Russian gas. Now buys LNG. And also in Russia.

    The United States buys LNG from Russia and sells it at exorbitant prices to Poland.
    Ukraine buys Donetsk and Russian coal more expensive than directly.
    Just as Slovakia pays more expensively for the same reverse of Russian gas.
    And so in many ways they shot themselves in the leg ...

      These are the usual "equivalent patterns". It’s closer to bring from Russia than from the United States.

    How does gas trading affect my well-being? Prices, salaries, utilities gasoline, etc. No way! This topic of sales is constantly being imposed on us. It is important for Putin and his entourage to show their significance for Europe. And we don’t have money for children, they’ll collect pennies from people for treatment! Every six months, gas prices for people are raised, and everyone praises the North, South and other flows. Already 100 generations ahead they have provided for themselves, and everything is small, and there is no time to think about people!

    Actually, this is gas from Yamal, bought by the United States and sold to Poland, a cash-in-pocket.
