Poland’s PGNiG hits LNG trucking milestone

Poland’s dominant gas firm and LNG importer PGNiG said it has loaded the 15,000th truck at the country’s only regasification terminal in Swinoujscie.

From the beginning of this year, the Lech Kaczynski LNG terminal has loaded 5,454 trucks or 96,475 tonnes of liquefied natural gas, a rise of 62 percent compared to the entire 2020, PGNiG said in a statement.

PGNiG is in charge of all the supplies coming to the import terminal operated by Gaz-System. The facility, which is currently undergoing expansion, received a cargo from Qatar on Monday, marking its 146th delivery since 2016.

The Polish gas firm mostly imports volumes under its long-term deals with Qatargas and Cheniere but also the spot market.

The Lech Kaczynski LNG import terminal regasifies most of these volumes and sends them into the domestic grid.

However, PGNiG transports some of these volumes via trucks to regasification stations that feed off-grid networks, production plants, and recreational facilities, it said.

Besides in Poland, PGNiG also loads trucks at the small-scale reloading station in the Lithuanian port of Klaipeda.

The firm is the only user of the Klaipedos Nafta facility as of April 2020. It has earlier this year loaded the 500th truck at the plant.

According to PGNiG, most of these LNG supplies, or about 76 percent, land in Poland but also in other Baltic states.
