    On 2nd October 2018, the Plenipotentiary of the Polish Government for Strategic Energy Infrastructure, Piotr Naimski, spoke about the perspectives for Poland’s energy transition at The Future of Energy EMEA Summit in London.

    The two-day event, organised by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, gathered representatives of leading banks and energy businesses, such as J.P. Morgan, Credit Agricole CIB, Foresight, ABN-AMRO and Vattenfall.

     

    During a discussion with Bloomberg’s William Kennedy, Mr Naimski outlined the concept of the Baltic Pipe – a proposal to import gas from the Norwegian continental shelf to Poland via Denmark and the Baltic Sea. The need for the diversification of energy supplies as well as finding new sources of energy imports was also emphasised.

     

    Asked about a possibility of extending an energy contract with Gazprom, Mr Naimski said: “It is not [in] Polish strategic interest to extend in any sense the existing contract or anything similar to this contract.”

     

    The Baltic Pipe project aims at changing an established direction of natural gas transmission from the east-west into north-south axis in order to strengthen Poland’s national energy security.
