GAZ-SYSTEM launches non-binding Market Screening for new transmission capacities as well as new regasification capacities of the planned LNG Terminal (FSRU). Commissioning is expected for 2026/2027 prospective.
On 20 July 2020, the company launched non-binding Market Screening for new transmission capacities in the National Transmission System (NTS), which may be made available as a result of making available regasification capacities of LNG Terminal FSRU type, along with its integration with the transmission system by creating a physical entry point from the LNG Terminal to the NTS. The floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) will be located in the area of Gdansk, Poland.
It is assumed that the new LNG Terminal will allow regasification of at least 4.5 billion m3/y, but the final decision on the technical capacities of the LNG regasification terminal, and thus offered capacity, will depend largely on market interest submitted under this procedure and then confirmed in the binding phase of the market demand survey.
In 2020, the LNG Terminal in the Gdansk (Poland) area was entered by the European Commission on the fourth list of Projects of Common Interest to the European Union (PCI status). PCI Projects list includes crucial infrastructure projects designed to improve security in the European Energy Market. The projects must also contribute to the implementation of EU Climate and Environmental Policy. More information available on the GAZ-SYSTEM’s PCI website.
