Woźniak on American LNG: We do not want the Yamal contract to repeat

We strive to diversification of gas supplies sources because we do not want to repeat the Yamal contract with Gazprom, because of which we are sentenced for a long term, difficult conditions and a high price – said PGNiG’s CEO Piotr Woźniak.

A new deal of PGNiG and American Centrica for LNG deliveries to Poland forecasts nine deliveries within five years.

– We build PGNiG’s portfolio step by step. We have been doing it since a short period of time, because the terminal has worked for a year and a half. We intend to fully use its potential – said PGNiG’s CEO. He added that Poland is satisfied with the American contract, because a dogma that gas import to Europe on medium- and long term conditions cannot be fulfilled by LNG technology, has been broken.
