PGNiG plans to increase the capacity of UGS in Poland to 4 bcm

The PGNiG plans to invest in the expansion of the UGS in Wierzchowicach by 800 million cubic meters. Thanks to the investment, the total storage capacity in the country will increase by 25% to 4 bcm, the press service of the company reports.

"The increasing of the gas storage in Wierzchowicach will significantly strengthen Poland's energy security. As a result of this investment, our gas storage capacity will increase by as much as 25%, that is, an additional 800 million cubic meters. This will make us more resistant to crises like the one we are currently dealing with in Europe. By investing in storage infrastructure, we increase the potential of Poland's gas market. This will be one of the priority directions of the multi-energy concern, which we are building together with PKN ORLEN and Grupa LOTOS," said the head of the board of PGNiG SA, Iwona Waskmundska-Olejniczak.

The expansion of the PSG in Wierzchowicach will increase its working capacity from the existing 1.3 to 2.1 bcm of gas. Thus, PSG will have 50% of Poland's gas storage capacity, and the total storage volume will reach 4.03 billion cubic meters. According to a preliminary estimate, the total investment cost will be PLN 385 million (€82 million), and the project implementation period will be up to 30 months.
