The feasibility research for the small-scale LNG terminal in Gda?sk has been accomplished. As a subsequent step, the choice can be made whether or not to proceed with the venture. The terminal could be the primary such facility in Poland, which may assist improve the usage of LNG as a gasoline in each maritime and highway transport and thus strengthen the LOTOS Group’s place as a pacesetter in different fuels.
The venture to assemble the small-scale LNG terminal in Gda?sk is a joint initiative of Grupa LOTOS and Operator Gazoci?gów Przemys?owych GAZ-SYSTEM working collectively as a consortium. The terminal is designed to function an LNG dealing with and logistics depot supplying service stations, vessels (bunkering) and off-grid amenities, amongst others. To make sure that it maintains its traits, LNG can be transported utilizing devoted tankers and cryogenic containers.
The venture can be associated to the deliberate growth of the capacities of the LNG terminal in ?winouj?cie and the venture to assemble a floating storage regasification unit (FSRU), i.e. an off-shore terminal with on-board LNG regasification amenities, within the Gda?sk Bay.
The venture includes development of an LNG storage tank, a loading and unloading system for the vessel station, pumping amenities for ships, and pumping amenities for highway tankers and containers. The terminal’s goal storage capability might exceed three,000 m3. The objective of the venture is to faucet the potential of the promising LNG dealing with and bunkering market. Expansion of Poland’s import capacities opens up a possibility to create an LNG dealing with and distribution market in Poland and the broader area, with the LNG depot in Gda?sk as an necessary part of the logistics chain.
Located inside the Baltic-Adriatic Corridor of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), Gda?sk might develop into a major logistics hub for LNG provides alongside your complete hall, enhancing the probabilities for elevated use of LNG as a lovely different gasoline in transport. The LNG depot in Gda?sk may additionally efficiently provide LNG to areas in Poland with out entry to the gasoline grid.
LOTOS operates state-of-the-art refinery (situated in Gda?sk), holding an appropriate connection to Druzhba pipeline and Naftoport – Baltic Sea terminal community.
