 Poland to sell U.S. gas to Ukraine

Poland will be selling to Ukraine the liquefied natural gas (LNG) that it purchases from the United States, Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG) said in a statement.

"Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG) has purchased a cargo of liquefied natural gas from the US, and then – following regasification – sold the natural gas to Energy Resources of Ukraine (ERU)," PGNiG said.

It was noted that the contracted LNG tanker will arrive at the President Lech Kaczynski LNG Terminal in Swinoujscie at the beginning of November. LNG will be injected into the Polish transmission system after regasification, from where it will reach Ukraine and ERU via the gas connection in Hermanowice, Sputnik reported.

Deliveries will be carried out until the end of the year, the company added. However, PGNiG did not specify the amount of the LNG that Ukraine would receive.
