The tanker operated by Qatargas is set to arrive at its destination on 11 December.
It is carrying over 200,000 m3 of liquid natural gas (LNG), and started its trip once Qatargas had conducted a successful audit of the Polish terminal, and confirmed that it can receive its first delivery of gas.
The LNG terminal in northern Poland is meant to decrease the country's energy dependence on Russia.
The project is worth some PLN 3.5 billion.
Qatargas is “the largest LNG producing company in the world, with an annual LNG production capacity of 42 million tonnes per annum (MTA),” it says on its website. (rg/di)
