PRAGUE (ICIS news)--Poland has greatly improved its energy security by signing a deal with Qatar for the annual delivery of 1m tonnes/year of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from 2014, the Polish Oil & Gas Co (PGNiG) said on Tuesday.
The LNG could account for around one-tenth of domestic demand, said state-controlled PGNiG.
PGNiG said efforts would now be stepped up to construct a sea terminal for the delivery of LNG shipments to Swinoujscie.
The facility could cost approximately €600m ($845m), it added.
