In 2018 and 2019, PGNiG plans to produce 3.8 bcm of natural gas per year (measured as high-methane gas equivalent), whereas the planned volume of crude oil and condensate production is 820,000 tonnes in 2018 and 784,000 tonnes in 2019.

The plans for 2018 in Poland include development and tie-in of 12 wells, development of three fields (Solec, Gryżyna, and Krobielewko), modernisation and extension of existing installations.

Together with the Polish Geological Institute − National Research Institute, PGNiG will continue the research project into the application of the fracturing technology to extract coal bed methane in Gilowice. Thanks to this technology, in the future PGNiG will be able to increase its domestic production capacity. Coal bed methane may be an important element of national energy security based on production of hydrocarbons from domestic resources, while mine demethanization will improve the work safety of miners and contribute to reducing emissions of methane, an aggressive greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere.

On the Norwegian Continental Shelf, PGNiG UN, as a project partner, will continue to produce hydrocarbons from the Skarv, Morvin, Vilje, Vale, and Gina Krog fields and will proceed with the development of the Snadd and Gina Krog fields. The company will also work towards ensuring stable, predictable and long-term gas supplies to Poland. These efforts will include analysis of infrastructure scenarios for transmission of Norwegian gas to Poland, but also potential acquisitions of gas fields in Norway. At the beginning of 2018, the number of licences will increase to 21. The increase is related to the expected approval of the acquisition of the PL433 licence by Norwegian authorities and the conclusion of the last licence round.

PGNiG UN also intends to acquire new licence areas by participating in annual APA licence rounds and in regular licence rounds held every two to three years. The company may seek to acquire new licence areas through farm-in (purchase of interests from other companies) or farm-down (exchange of interests with other companies) arrangements. In the future, PGNiG UN may participate, as a partner, in drilling projects in the Arctic Zone. One of the reasons is that it has interests in two licences (PL850 and PL 856) in the Barents Sea.

As regards Pakistan, plans for 2018 include the completion of drilling, testing and bringing on stream the Rehman-4 production well and the start of drilling of the Rehman-5 and Rizq-3 production wells. At the same time, work will be carried out to expand the capacity of the production infrastructure and tie in the Rizq-2 well and the Rehman-4 well for production. It is also expected that the potential Roshan field will be brought on stream. Other plans for 2018 include acquisition of 3D seismic dataset for the area of the potential W1 field, 2D seismic dataset for the area of the potential W2 field, and drilling of the Roshan-1 exploration well, which is intended to discover another field with recoverable gas of 3.1 bcm (17 mboe). Drilling of the Roshan-1 well will represent fulfilment of the new commitments made in 2017 in connection with the renewal of the Kirthar exploration licence.

As regards seismic surveys, acquisitions of 2D and 3D seismic data in Poland (for PGNiG and counterparties outside the Group) as well as in Germany and Ukraine are planned to be made in 2018.
