"Our business decisions ought to reflect the needs of the market. We assume that the capital invested in the construction of the LNG terminal shall be used most efficiently to bring the best returns in the future. We expect our terminal to play an important role not only on the energy map of Poland but also in the entire region of Central and Eastern Europe, offering the clients a wide range of business opportunities", said Rafal Wardzinski, the CEO of Polskie LNG Company.

The Market Screening procedure will provide information about the demand for increased regasification capacity exceeding the volume currently offered by the Świnoujście LNG Terminal, and the potential for commercial use of the tanks to provide LNG storage services. The market demand for other functionalities such as LNG truck cistern loading services, and the expansion of the plant infrastructure to provide the facilities for LNG rail cistern loading and reloading to smaller vessels, including LNG bunkering services will also be analysed.
