Polskie LNG is to move forward with its LNG Terminal Expansion Program after it obtained a set of environmental and location decisions for all related projects. 

The Expansion Program of President Lech Kaczyński’s LNG Terminal is implemented as scheduled.

“The environmental decision and location permit are of fundamental importance for subsequent phases of collating pivotal project documentation such as building permits required for the investment process,” said Paweł Jakubowski, President of the Management Board of Polskie LNG.

Meanwhile, two tender procedures are in progress. The objective of the first procedure – announced in December 2018 – is the selection of the contractor for three key components of the onshore expansion program: construction of the third process storage tank, additional process installations increasing the regasification capacity and the LNG-to-rail transhipment installation along with a dedicated railway siding. Upon bidders’ request, the deadline for submitting the offers was extended until February 19. 

The second tender procedure (launched on January 2, 2019) pertains to the offshore development of the facility, i.e. the construction of an additional jetty. The latter project is  implemented in collaboration with the Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority. In that tender procedure, the offers are due by 26 February.

Enhanced regasification capacity, additional functionality and services are offered in response to the growing market demand for natural gas in Central and Eastern Europe and in the entire Baltic Sea region. Polish LNG Terminal will become a key facility contributing to the development of LNG market not only locally, but also in neighbour countries.
