WARSAW, May 5 (Reuters) - Poland’s state-run gas firm PGNiG confirmed late on Wednesday that it is considering buying five cargoes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in June and July as spot contracts.
The spot supplies would be delivered to a new Baltic Sea LNG terminal, which is due to start commercial operations this summer and is Poland’s flagship project to reduce reliance on Russian gas.
The spot deliveries will be carried out irrespective of the regular, long-term LNG supply contracts PGNiG has with Qatargas , PGNiG said in a statement.
Earlier on Wednesday, two trade sources said PGNiG had tendered to buy five cargoes of LNG. (Reporting by Agnieszka Barteczko; editing by David Clarke)
