In its storage business, the PGNiG Group focuses on the following two key strategic goals:

  • to ensure Poland’s energy security by holding emergency stocks of natural gas, as required under the Act; the emergency stocks are held in storage facilities and their volume corresponds to 90 days of consumption,
  • to improve efficiency of the storage operations, so that after the capacity expansion projects have been completed, the Company is able to satisfy the expected demand for storage services. Once the projects are operational, Poland’s total capacity to store high-methane gas will be approximately 3.1 bcm (34.4 TWh).

Underground gas storage facilities also play an important role in Poland’s domestic gas production. They help to optimise the production process and make it safer, ensuring stable output throughout the year regardless of market demand.

The storage facilities also provide security and support to the wind power sector, as they act as a back-up energy source in periods when wind is not strong enough, and to the trading sector, as they help optimise gas purchase and sale transactions when natural gas prices are volatile.
