Poland will be able to survive without Russian gas, Piotr Naimsky, authorized representative of the republic’s government for strategic energy infrastructure, said at a forum of EU and US countries on the situation around Ukraine.
According to Bankier.pl, Naimsky explained that this would be possible due to the LNG terminal in Swinoujscie and the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline, a joint project of the Polish state-owned Gaz-System and the Danish Energinet.
A government spokesman stressed that Gazprom stopped gas supplies in April, although the contract was valid until the end of the year. At the same time, according to him, at present, Poland’s gas storage facilities are 100% full and the country will be able to meet domestic fuel needs.
Recall that at the end of April, Gazprom suspended gas supplies to Poland due to non-payment of fuel in rubles. In Warsaw, the new payment terms, introduced by decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin at the end of March, were considered a violation of the agreement.
