Poland’s climate and environment minister has told PAP that the government has adopted a resolution terminating an agreement with Russia on the construction of a system of gas pipelines to carry gas through Polish territory.
Poland has been developing alternative gas supplies and expanding its infrastructure so it can become fully independent from Russian natural gas from 2023, the government commissioner for strategic energy infrastructure has said.
Poland's main gas retailer, state-owned PGNiG, said on Thursday that it does not aim to sign a long-term contract with Gazprom for gas supplies to the country.
Poland's main gas retailer, state-owned PGNiG, said on Friday that Gazprom was seeking international arbitration against PGNiG for a contract price revision.
Poland will no longer need Russian gas supplies delivered by the Yamal pipeline next October owing to the start of deliveries of North Sea gas via the new Baltic Pipe.
On June 5, PGNiG and Gazprom signed an annex to the Yamal contract, under which the Polish company expects to receive a USD 1.5 bln net return by July 1, 2020, PGNiG has said in a statement.
Poland's gas monopolist PGNiG has won a lawsuit against Russia's Gazprom regarding the revision of the contract price for gas supplied by Gazprom under the 1996 Yamal Contract.
Poland's gas monopolist PGNiG has notified the Russian gas giant Gazprom that it will not renew the Yamal Contract after December 31, 2022, according to a PGNiG statement issued on Friday.
