Poland and Qatar discuss LNG
The Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski met with the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani earlier this week to discuss gas issues and economic cooperation.
"We managed [during the talk with the emir] to confirm the special climate in Polish-Qatari relations," President Komorowski told reporters after the talks. He expressed satisfaction with the talks, describing them as “very, very promising”.
"Qatar is an important country for Poland, a country of great economic hopes looking for a possibility to diversify its political partners in Europe and Poland is an attractive [country] for them," he added.
The talks included a discussion about a contract for the delivery of gas from Qatar to Poland beginning in 2014. The president also stressed that Poland has high hopes for the construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal. The facility can distribute large amounts of gas not only in Poland but also throughout Central and Eastern Europe. "This is a strategic plan, it is worth thinking over with the Qataris where one may locate common and good business, also for the benefit of third countries […] I am also thinking about Ukraine," said Komorowski.
