Swinoujscie LNG terminal operator Polskie LNG has confirmed that expansion work at the terminal is set to begin, following the arrival onsite of the contractors, Austria's Porr and Germany's TGE Gas Engineering. The contracts to expand the LNG import terminal from 5 Bcm (about 3.6 million tons/yr) to 8.3 Bcm (about 6 million tons/yr) were signed by a consortium of Porr and TGE last month in a deal worth 1.9 billion zloty ($483 million) (LNGI Jun.25'20). "Polskie LNG has all the legally required decisions necessary to carry out construction works," the company said, adding that the planned completion date for the expansion project at the Swinoujscie facility on Poland's Baltic coast is December 2021. Poland's drive for energy independence from Russia doesn't pause for a pandemic. "Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the completion phase of the first stage of development remains unchanged," Polskie LNG said in a statement on Jul. 2 (LNGI Jun.25'20). Polskie LNG and Gaz-System Vice President Krzysztof Jackowski said that the handover of the contractor's premises was "an important stage preceding the start of construction works at the terminal. According to the investment schedule, in autumn this year, work will begin on the implementation of foundations for an additional regasifier." Polskie LNG launched a binding open season for the planned capacity expansion in March (LNGI Mar.25'20).
