Poland Plans to Abandon Russian Gas in Five Years

The current contract for the supply of Russian gas to Poland is in effect until January 1, 2020.

In five years Poland plans to significantly cut natural gas supplies from Russia or even completely abandon them, as stated by Polish Foreign Minister, Witold Waszczykowski.

The current contract for the supply of Russian gas to Poland is in effect until January 1, 2020. The Foreign Minister said that it can be extended only if Russia offers a price lower than the current one.

"Maybe, yes. But only if Russia offers a much lower price than it is today," said Waszczykowski.
He noted that Poland covers one third of its natural gas needs from its own resources. Another third of the country will be supplied through the LNG terminal.

Waszczykowski said that Poland is actively building the infrastructure to diversify gas supplies and in five years will be able to completely abandon Russian gas or be less dependent on it.

"In June we received a tanker from the United States. In technical terms, it is possible, so now we are waiting for proposals from the Americans regarding the price. And we have already signed an agreement with Denmark and Norway to build the Baltic Pipeline," he said.
