Poland allegedly to use Croatia's planned LNG terminal.

By bne IntelliNews October 29, 2010
While Poland is planning to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal to in Swinoujscie - a city on the Baltic sea shore - by mid-2014, it might also be able to use the planned LNG terminal in Croatia, according to business portal WNP.pl. The idea would be to link the Visegrd Group's countries (i.e. Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary) by a joint gas pipeline that would additionally be linked with the planned TLN terminal in Croatia, the portal argues. Thus, it adds, the pipeline would ultimately link two LNG terminals with combined capacity of 17.5bn cu.m. Experts quoted by WNP.pl deem that up to 50% of this project could be financed via EU resources. The Swinoujscie terminal's initial capacity is projected at 5bn cu.m. and, depending on the demand, the facility could be developed to 7.5bn cu.m. According to earlier media reports, the Croatian terminal is to be ready in 2014. tom
