Poland intends to complete Yamal contract with Gazprom

In accordance with the provisions of the contract, the Polish energy company PGNiG sent Gazprom a message about the desire to complete the Yamal contract for the supply of Russian gas to the republic on December 31, 2022.

This is stated in the press service of the state oil and gas company in Poland, which was distributed on Friday November 15.

According to the message, the management of the Polish company believes that the actions taken by Poland to ensure energy security, in particular, LNG supply contracts, the acquisition of natural gas fields in the North Sea and the actions carried out by the operator of the gas transmission system in the field of infrastructure expansion, allow to complete The Yamal contract, without going beyond its provisions.

According to the head of PGNiG, Peter Wozniak, Russian gas will be replaced in domestic consumption by LNG supplies from the United States and Qatar, as well as the Baltic Pipe pipeline, which is currently being built from Norway to Poland.

Recall that the Yamal contract was signed in 1996 and provides for the supply to Poland of 10 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

Policy diversification of gas supplies to the country has led to the fact that now, three years before the end of the Yamal contract, Poland has reduced imports of Russian gas by 21%.

    ... the replacement of Russian gas in domestic consumption will occur due to LNG supplies from the USA and Qatar, as well as the Baltic Pipe pipeline, which is now being built from Norway to Poland.

    Beautifully live not forbid laughing True, subsidies from the EU for the next year are reduced by 25%, by 2022, I think, they will cut back. But this is nothing, most importantly, Poland CE Europe! It remains to go to the corner from Pennsylvania.
    But seriously, Norway has the opportunity in three years to increase production by 10 billion?

    ... gas production in Norway fell in September to 192,7 million cubic meters. m per day, which was 34,6% lower than the forecast NPD


    And if it can’t, then what's the difference, Norway will send gas to Poland, and Russia will increase the supply to Germany by the same amount and Novatek will begin to transport LNG to Swinoujscie under the guise of an American one.
    The question has arisen, will the norms of 3 energy packages be distributed on Baltic Pipe?
    1. It will not be by itself.

    They will learn from the non-brothers: to dig transit gas, then buy gas in Germany and flood the courts with lawsuits against Gazprom.

      Well, there is also the experience of Lithuania, she buys American. True, a little embarrassment came out: the Americans take the Russian cheap and sell them to Lithuania, as their own, more expensive. The Lithuanians were a little indignant, quite a bit, and wiped themselves off - the master said - to buy, then - to buy, no one gave a word to them. You can learn from Trump how to do business with profit.
  4. I believe that Russia should begin to build the Power of Siberia-2 to supply gas to India and Pakistan.

      The power of Siberia-2 will go to China

      And to India ... there is such a project from Turkmenistan through peaceful sunny Afghanistan belay Neither is it without us lol and in India LNG, in 2018 Gazprom sold almost 3 million tons there, and this year the Indians and Novatek created a joint venture.
