Poland and Slovakia to Further Strengthen Regional Gas Ties
Representatives of Poland's Gaz-System and Slovakia's state-owned SPPand Peter Gerhart, State Secretary at the Ministry of Economy recently discussed opportunities for bilateral gas cooperation and the possibility for Slovakia to access liquified natural gas (LNG) supplies, Gaz-System announced, according to CEEenergynews.
Increasing gas transmission capacity across the Central Eastern European (CEE) region and effective use of existing cross-border interconnections constitute the priorities for both Gaz-System as operator of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście, northwest Poland, and SPP as Slovakia's main gas distributor, Gaz-System said in its press release last week.
During the meeting, the parties discussed new areas of cooperation related primarily to LNG supplies to Slovakia, in particular from the planned FSRU (Floating Storage Regasification Unit) terminal in Gdańsk.
Gaz-System is currently conducting a non-binding market research procedure to gauge the demand for additional regasification capacity at the FSRU terminal in Gdańsk.
