Slovakia's SPP pioneers LNG for the Czech Republic
The Slovak company Slovenský plynárenský priemysel (SPP) continues to diversify gas supplies to Slovakia by buying natural gas. Thus, on May 1, 2022, another LNG tanker from the American port of Corpus Christi with a volume of 93 mcm of natural gas arrived at the LNG terminal on the island of Krk.
SPP will supply part of the acquired LNG volume (approximately 5 mcm) to its subsidiary SPP CZ, which is the energy supplier in the Czech Republic. This will be the first-ever physical supply of LNG to the Czech market by SPP.
"Ensuring a continuous supply of energy to all our consumers, from large industrial consumers to households, is an absolute priority for the SPP, and we are paying full attention to the current situation. SPP specialists closely monitor the development of the situation and analyze all available business opportunities and tools to ensure uninterrupted gas supply to consumers in both the short and long term, "the company said.
Even countries traditionally dependent on pipeline gas from Russia are looking for new ways and routes to obtain the resource after the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
