Poland is planning to install an LNG floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) in the Bay of Gdansk by 2024-25 to meet growing Polish and regional gas demand, Piotr Naimski, the government's adviser on strategic energy infrastructure projects, said Wednesday.

Poland is diversifying its gas suppliers to end its decades-old dependence on Russian pipeline gas, with the new FSRU also set to give Poland the opportunity to become a gateway for gas supplies in the region in the middle of the next decade.

 

Warsaw estimates Polish gas demand will rise by up to 4 Bcm/year from around 18 Bcm this year to 21-22 Bcm in 2023-24.

 

The government plans to meet that demand by purchasing Norwegian gas through the 10 Bcm/year Baltic Pipe project, with an additional 4 Bcm/year set to come from domestic production and up to 7.5 Bcm/year of LNG supplies through the Swinoujscie terminal.

Daily (12.08.2019): European spot power prices plummeted by nearly 70% on Friday due to a surge in renewables output

12/08/2019 11:16:00

Oil prices continued to climb on Friday, in response to weaker Euroilstock data, which showed a decrease in the total crude and product inventories of 16 European countries in July. Prices also drew support from OPEC supply cuts and Saudi Arabia’s commitment to bring the oil market back to balance. Hence, Brent crude rose by 2% to $58.53 a barrel. Concurrently, WTI futures surged by 3.7% to $54.50 a barrel, on lower production growth forecasts after U.S. drillers slashed the active oil rig count for a sixth straight week.
