    About LNG from USA

    Jarosław Kaczyński wrote in a letter on the occasion of the first LNG delivery from the USA under a long-term agreement of PGNiG-Cheniere that American gas is cheaper than that from the Yamal contract by 20-30 percent. This is obvious obviousness, and the breakthrough is something else – says Wojciech Jakóbik, editor-in-chief of BiznesAlert.pl. The President of Law and Justice compared the price of the Yamal contract with the offer for LNG from the USA under the Cheniere-PGNiG contract. He did not say anything new. While signing the supply agreement from Cheniere in November 2018, the president of PGNiG Piotr Woźniak declared that the contract is 20-30 percent cheaper than the Russian offerfrom the…

    President Kaczyński: The price of gas imported from America is almost one third lower than the price of gas imported from Russia.

    By becoming dependent on gas supplies from Russia, we are strengthening our political and economic sovereignty – Jarosław Kaczyński, PiS president, wrote in a letter read out on Friday in the gas station in Świnoujście. He added that gas from the USA is almost one third cheaper than Russian gas. Kaczyński’s letter was read by the Government Plenipotentiary for strategic energy infrastructure Piotr Naimski during the official, ceremonial reception in Świnoujście of the first LNG cargo delivered from the USA under long-term contracts with Cheniere. As explained by Naimski, the letter is addressed to the president of PGNiG Piotr Woźniak. The implementation of this contract is a milestone in the sphere of…

    EU-Kommission will Flüssigerdgasimporte aus den USA auf acht Milliarden Kubikmeter verdoppeln

    Union mit unterschiedlichen Aussagen zu Nord Stream 2 Die EU-Kommission hat am Rande einer LNG-Konferenz in Brüssel bekannt gegeben, dass sie plant, die im letzten Jahr um 272 Prozent gestiegene Einfuhr von amerikanischem Flüssigerdgas bis 2023 auf wenigstens acht Milliarden Kubikmeter jährlich zu verdoppeln. EU-Kommissionspräsident Jean-Claude Juncker hatte dem amerikanischen Präsidenten 2018 eine deutliche höhere Abnahme versprochen, um die von Trump angedrohten Zölle auf Automobile aus den EU-Mitgliedsländern zu verhindern (vgl. Juncker erkauft vorläufigen US-Verzicht auf Autozölle). Verpflichtung zur Abnahme von Mindestmengen Um die Abnahme weiter zu steigern, soll im schleswig-holsteinischen Brunsbüttel ein weiteres europäisches Flüssigerdgas-Terminal errichtet werden. Dem schleswig-holsteinischen FDP-Staatssekretär Thilo Rohlfs nach wird die Anlage etwa 450 Millionen Euro…

    Europe is Entering its Golden Age of Gas

    In a 2011 report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) asked a provocative question: are we entering a golden age of gas? At the time, U.S. shale gas production was surging and new fields were coming online around the globe, encouraged by high oil prices. Gas, it seemed, was poised to “play a far more prominent role in the global energy mix.” Since 2011, the short answer to the IEA’s question has been ‘not yet,’ at least on a global scale. Though many of the IEA’s assumptions have been coming to fruition in the last two years, including major demand growth from China, major supply growth from unconventional sources, and low growth…
