Polskie LNG, a company created to build an LNG terminal in Świnoujście, said that a recent study showed that the terminal may have to be expanded beyond the original plan. Polskie LNG carried out a market screening with 22 Polish and foreign companies in late 2012 and 2013.
The study found that demand for regasification services could surpass the planned capacity (570,000 Nm3/h) of the terminal in 2015. Companies are also interested in additional services, such as reloading LNG from ships to land transportation units.
Terminal managers, are thinking about building a third gas container to expand terminal capacity to 860,000 Nm3/h. The study shows, that in 2020 companies would need to process 800,000 Nm3/h. Currently the terminal can import 5 billion m3 of LNG. Poland uses 14 billion m3 of LNG per year.
