U.S consults Poland on the risk of Russian aggression against Ukraine
The United States has consulted Poland on the risk of Russian aggression against Ukraine. Both ministers reaffirmed that any further Russian military aggression against Ukraine will have severe consequences for the Kremlin.
“The Polish and United States top diplomats Zbigniew Rau (MFA) and Anthony Blinken (Secretary of State) discussed the current security situation in Europe, including the escalation of Russian Federation’s hostile activities towards Ukraine and the continued hybrid attack by Belarus at its border with Poland. Secretary Blinken repeated President Biden’s pledge on the US and its allies’ strong response in the event of Russian aggression against Ukraine,” informs Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“Referring to the developments in Ukraine and Belarus, Secretary Blinken underscored the role of close allied cooperation within the OSCE, after Poland will take over the Organization’s chair for one year in January 2022. The interlocutors highlighted the need to perform concerted actions in support of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. They also reaffirmed that any further Russian military aggression against Ukraine will have severe consequences for the Kremlin,” the Ministry’s statement says.
“The international community must speak in one voice, act cohesively and join efforts while facing Russia’s aggressive attitude,” stressed the chief of Polish diplomacy. The two ministers also agreed that in the dialogue with the Russian side an even balance must be achieved between diplomacy and deterrence. It should be based on the principle of reciprocity and take into account our anxieties about Russian actions as well as be carried out in close and full cooperation between allies.
PGNiG uses an innovative pipeline technology in Norway
PGNiG’s Norwegian company launched the first line of the heated gas pipeline serving the Ærfugl field. The installation is unique and opens new prospects for the development of subsea resources
PGNiG Upstream Norway, together with Aker BP and other license partners, launched the first leg of the Electrically Heat Traced Flowline (EHTF) connecting three production wells of the Ærfugl field with the floating production and storage unit FPSO Skarv. The installation, with a record length of 14.5 km, is intended to prevent the formation of hydrates – an ice-like mixture of water and methane that can accumulate in pipelines, which may cause blockages.
