Polish Oil & Gas Company has completed the construction of Cluster B at the Kosakowo Cavern Underground Gas Storage Facility (UGSF), a project of strategic importance for Poland’s energy security.
‘Completion of the second stage of the Kosakowo project marks the successful delivery of PGNiG’s storage capacity expansion programme. Over the past decade, we have doubled Poland’s gas stockholding capacity. Besides diversification, it is the main pillar of the country’s gas security,’said Paweł Majewski, President of the PGNiG Management Board during the official project closing ceremony in Dębogórze, close to Gdynia.
Cluster B at the Kosakowo UGSF consists of five storage chambers with a total capacity of 154.3 million cubic metres of natural gas. The project, launched in 2016, was implemented in stages – with the first three chambers accepted in 2019, and the construction of the two remaining chambers, with a capacity of 60.3 million cubic metres, just now completed. Cluster A, which also consists of five chambers, with a total capacity of 145.5 million cubic metres of natural gas, had been commissioned earlier. That part of the project had been delivered in 2011-2016.
