A €130 million investment from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to expand the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal in Świnoujście, northwest Poland, has been approved by the European Commission, which advances the EU’s plans to boost European energy security and reduce reliance on Russian gas supplies.

According to the Commission, the project will increase the terminal’s capacity to convert LNG into its gaseous form, store it, and ensure that it is easily transported.

The ERDF financing was possible notably due to an important regional dimension of the project. LNG from the terminal will be transported through the newly constructed interconnectors to other countries including the Baltic States, Slovakia, Czechia and Ukraine.
