First Ever Cargo of US LNG Arrives in Poland
U.S., as energy exporter, affecting geopolitics in Europe
It’s been a long time coming for Poland–on the order of three years. Back in the fall of 2014, the government of Poland sent its energy company executives to the U.S. to engage in official talks with the goal of securing LNG supplies and pricing for a new LNG import terminal in Swinoujscie that was under construction at the time and became operational in 2015. The goal: get off of its dependency on Russian natural gas.
Today the wait ended when an LNG tanker showed up, and was photographed waiting for four tug boats to help it enter the ?winouj?cie LNG Terminal in northwestern Poland.

U.S. Ambassador to Poland Paul Jones said that the terminal would give Poland an opportunity to become a regional gas hub.
