In 2021, we obtained licenses for 12 new LNG regasification stations
From the beginning of 2021 to the end of March this year, the President of the Energy Regulatory Office granted a license for 12 LNG regasification stations belonging to Polska Spółka Gazownictwa. Thus, PSG already has licenses for 64 LNG regasification stations throughout the country.
Polska Spółka Gazownictwa estimates that by the end of 2021, it will be possible to acquire licenses for approximately 20 additional LNG regasification stations. The launch of a LNG regasification station gives new customers the possibility of faster use of an alternative, safe and ecological fuel, which is natural gas.
As an effective alternative to classic gasification, PSG uses the so-called island gasification, i.e. gasification with the use of a network that is not connected to system gas pipelines, and its supply is provided by the LNG regasification stations currently under construction. This technology can also be used in the so-called pre-gasification, i.e. to build gas infrastructure in a specific area and supply gas to customers during the gasification process in the area, before it is connected to the gas network. Sometimes there is also a need to build LNG stations to support the operation of the distribution system. Gasification based on LNG regasification stations is possible if the technical and economic conditions are met.
Since early on this year, PSG obtained concessions from the President of the Energy Regulatory Office for LNG installations in the following towns: Dąbrowa Białostocka, Szczuczyn, Czyżew, Łukta, Budziszewice, Jednorożec, Lubotyń-Kolonia, Książki, Tychowo, Stryszawa, Stadła and Bychawa.
