Poland Works To Cut Umbilical Cord with Gazprom

While the EU whines about Nord Stream 2 but does nothing to speed up the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline, Poland is taking actual action and diversifying away from Russia, so it can say goodbye to Gazprom in 2022, when its current gas supply contract ends. Good for the Poles.

No problem. US LNG is only about 30 % more expensive than russian gas. Qatar gas is about 50% more expensive.

Their money their decision.

But Poland has a big petrochemical industry and is still a quite poor country - I am courious whether it will be still profitable with such an expensive gas- their Qatar deal is one of most expensive in the world and polish industry doesnt want it.

Poland has also a very serious problem with smog because people are burning rubbish and plastics or bad quality but cheap coal to heat their homes because they cant afford to use good quality coal or gas - even russian gas - the cheapest one. A lot of people die every year in Poland because there is dreadful air and now in Poland there is a serious national debate about it for the last couple of years.

The best solution for me is cheap russian gas or cheap good quality coal- polish coal is quite expensive because Poland gas a mature mines working sometimes for more than 100 years. But for sure not expensive LNG gas because people will still heat their home by rubbish and plastics.
