Poland’s PGNiG has finalised earlier agreements to start importing liquefied natural gas from the US beginning in 2022.

Binding contracts with two subsidiaries of US-based start-up trader Venture Global call for the delivery of the total of 2 million tonnes per annum of LNG over 20 years.

The state gas importer and distributor said that this translates into 2.7 billion cubic metres of gas to be made available to the local and neighboring European markets.
