“This is most likely the first contract in a series. In one year and a half we want to build a portfolio of such contracts. It could be with the U.S., it could be from other directions,” Maciej Wozniak, Deputy Head of PGNiG Deputy Head.

The US sent its first LNG supply to PGNiG on the spot market in June this year, however following President Trump’s visit to Warsaw the following month, a deal was made for regular distribution.

PGNiG have solely been dealing with Qatargas for LNG, who agreed to double shipments to 2mn tonnes per year until 2034.
