LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) acquires its liquid state by lowering the temperature of natural gas to -162 degrees Celsius. During the cooling process components of natural gas, such as water, carbon dioxide and nitrogen are removed, leaving methane as its main ingredient. Simultaneously, during liquefying process the volume of commodity is significantly reduced what makes LNG easier to store and transport. LNG is colourless, odourless, non-corrosive and non-toxic. It is considered to be more environmental friendly than any other fossil fuel due to the lowest emission of CO2.

After liquefaction at the loading terminal LNG is shipped in its liquid form to be regasified at the receiving point and injected into the natural gas pipeline infrastructure for further transport and distribution to homes and business.

Dynamic operations of PST’s UK Branch are focused on diversification of supplies to the Polish LNG terminal in Świnoujście. One of the operational successes was securing first LNG delivery from the US to this part of Europe as well as into other European Terminals (i.e. Montoir/France, Klaipeda/Lithuania).

With long-term FOB contracts becoming part of ORLEN’s LNG portfolio and managing an own fleet of modern LNG carriers, PST’s UK Branch will look increasingly into other destinations in the world to deliver LNG.
