Background

The Polish Baltic Sea Coast Terminal in Gdansk is an FSRU project that failed to receive Project of Common Interest (PCI) status in the 2017 list. According to some sources, the proposed terminal may have up to 8.2 billion cubic meters of LNG per year.[4][5] This represents between up to 50% of Poland’s 2015 demand for natural gas. According to Food and Water Europe's 2019 profile on Polish gas use and production, "Considering the low utilization rate of the already existing terminal [under 40%] and the current predictions that don’t foresee any significant decrease in LNG price, the possibility of it being viable economically is very low.[6]

The terminal received PCI status in 2019 when the EU's fourth PCI list was released.[7]
