Ukraine to have access to LNG terminals in Poland, Baltic states

This summer, Ukraine will have access to liquefied gas terminals in Poland and the Baltic states.

According to Ukrinform, Sergiy Makogon, CEO the Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine, announced this on Facebook.

"Today, the interconnector between Poland and Lithuania, GIPL, has joined the Baltic States in the European gas market. This is a significant breakthrough in energy security for the entire region," he said.

Makogon said that under such conditions it will be much harder for Gazprom to blackmail Lithuania and Poland.

According to him, a tanker with LNG gas for Poland will arrive at the Klapeda terminal in the coming days.

"After the completion of the Poland-Slovakia interconnector this summer, Ukraine will also receive [access] to LNG terminals in Poland and the Baltic States (ed.)," Makogon added.
