The prices of annual gas consumption in Poland between 2008 and 2021 fluctuated slightly, but throughout this period, the price fell from 3.19 euros in 2008 to 2.81 euros per kilowatt-hour in 2021. The lowest annual gas consumption price occurred in 2016, reaching 2.66 euros per kWh.
Structure of natural gas supplies to Poland
Gas purchases from abroad, in the amount of 171.8 TWh, were supplemented with gas from domestic sources in the amount of 41.8 TWh. Total gas supplies from abroad in 2018 included imports and intra-Community acquisitions. Imports from the eastern direction, carried out under a long-term contract concluded between PGNiG S.A. and Gazprom, continued to account for a significant part of the total gas supplies from abroad. The consumption of natural gas in Poland is growing year on year. Throughout 2020, PGNiG imported approximately 14.8 bn m3 of natural gas to Poland. Domestic production amounted to 3.8 billion cubic meters.
Structure of LNG supply to Poland
PGNiG has successfully continued its strategy of becoming independent from one dominant supplier. In addition to the expansion of the LNG portfolio, the Company is preparing to start supplying the Polish market with gas produced on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, whose transport via the Baltic Pipe through the North Sea, Denmark, and the Baltic Sea will begin at the end of 2022.
The construction of the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście was a positive investment from the standpoint of supply security, enabling gas supplies from global gas markets. This investment has contributed to a fundamental change in the country's gas energy mix, thanks to which currently 1/3 of the country's gas consumption can be satisfied with LNG supplies. Thus, in 2020, imports from the East amounted to approximately nine billion cubic meters, compared with around 9.66 billion m3 in 2017. LNG imports (from Qatar, Norway, and the USA) in 2020 increased and reached over 3.94 billion cubic meters (after regasification) in 2021, compared to 2017 when about 1.72 billion cubic meters of LNG was imported (after regasification).
