Poland's losses because of dependence on Russian gas amounted to €23 billion
In 2001-2018, because of dependence on a monopoly gas supplier – Russia, Poland lost from 50 to 100 billion zlotys (from 1.628 to 23.256 euros). It was announced by the authorized representative of the Polish government for the strategic energy infrastructure Petro Naimsky during the National Energy Summit in Gdansk.
The first task of the country is the effective use of its resources. Poland has its own energy resources, such as coal, some natural gas, limited amounts of wind and sun, and some water, Naimsky specified.
The expansion of the liquefied gas terminal in Świnoujście, the project Baltic Pipe, as well as the project of a floating liquefied natural gas terminal, which will be built in the Gdansk Bay in the future, is being carried out.
The pipeline Baltic Pipe will bring gas to Poland from the Norwegian shelf. The permeability of this gas pipeline will allow transporting 10 billion cubic meters of natural gas. The gas pipeline has to start working from October 1, 2022.
In addition, on December 31, 2022 the long-term Yamal agreement on the supply of gas from Russia ends.
