MOSCOW, Nov 8 — Poland is lying, claiming the cost of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States to 20-30% below the price of Russian gas, Deputy General Director for gas projects of national energy security Fund Alexei Grivach.
“They act according to the scheme that a lie if repeated many times can be mistaken for the truth. The facts suggest otherwise. If us LNG were 30% cheaper, they would now be increasing its procurement and would reduce the selection of the contract with “Gazprom”. But the opposite happens,” — said Grivach.
Polish state oil and gas company PGNiG on Thursday signed with American Cheniere Marketing International 24-year-old contract to supply LNG, according to which Poland in the period 2019-2022 years will receive annually approximately 0,52 million tons of LNG, and from 2023 to 2042 — 1.45 million tons. The head of PGNiG Piotr, Wozniak said that the cost of LNG from the United States under the new contract will be 20-30% lower than the price “Gazprom”.
