In the past 3 months, Poland (PGNiG) has signed three long-term contracts for LNG deliveries with the US firms Venture Global, Cheniere, and Sempra. A planned expansion project will increase this to 7.5 Bcm per year in 2021. The terminal is one of Europe’s busiest, operating at more than 60% of its capacity. In 2022, Poland’s long-term contract with Gazprom is set to expire, and the terminal could be responsible for processing more than 30% of the country’s total gas consumption. Poland is also planning to complete the Baltic Pipe project by the end of 2022, the gas pipeline that will deliver up to 10 Bcm of gas yearly from Norway.
