Further to the news of a sudden halt in Russian gas supplies to Poland, Grupa Azoty announces that the Group companies receive natural gas under a contract with Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo S.A. Poland has technical capabilities to source gas from various directions, e.g. through system interconnectors on its western and southern borders and via the LNG terminal in Świnoujście. The mix is supplemented by domestically produced gas and volumes withdrawn from gas storage facilities, where Poland has accumulated substantial stocks.
For the time being, supplies of natural gas to companies of the Grupa Azoty Group are continuing without any disruption and production is sustained at planned levels. However, the companies have contingency plans and operational scenarios in place in case that gas supplies are disrupted or curtailed.
