08 February 2019

Polskie LNG has obtained a set of environmental and location decisions for all projects implemented under the LNG Terminal Expansion Program.

Meanwhile, two tender procedures are in progress. The objective of the first procedure announced in December 2018 is the selection of the contractor for three key components of the onshore expansion program: (i) Additional regasification installation (ii) Third LNG process storage tank (iii) LNG-to-Rail transhipment installation.

The tender process includes signing the contract with the selected Contractor by the end of 2019. Reaching the target capacity of 7.5B Nm3/year is planned in 2021. The other two projects are scheduled for completion in Q2 of 2023. The LNG Terminal Expansion Program is to be implemented under the "design and build" formula.

The second tender procedure (launched on 2nd January 2019) pertains to the offshore development of the facility, i.e. the construction of an additional jetty. The latter project is implemented in collaboration with the Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority. In that tender procedure, the offers are due by  February 26th.

The new jetty will enable the provision of new crucial services at the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.
