Poland will not prolong a contract with “Gazprom”

By the end of 2020, Poland would refuse from the Russian gas supplies, the Government Plenipotententiary for Strategic Energy Infrastructure, Petro Naimsky, said.

At the end of 2022, obligations to purchase gas from Russia expire, Poland does not intend to extend the supply contract with “Gazprom” after 2022. The diversification of supplies will be facilitated by the contracts for the purchase of liquefied gas from the United States and Qatar.

It was reported earlier that the European Commission will allocate €215 million for the construction of the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline between Poland and Denmark. This was announced by the gas operator Gas-System. The construction of the Baltic Pipe is scheduled to be completed by October 1, 2022.

Gas will be transported from Norway to Poland through Denmark. The planned capacity of the pipeline is 10 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The total cost of the project is estimated at $1.4-1.8 billion.
