The U.S. Embassy in Warsaw is proud to support the Poland: Gateway for U.S. LNG to Central & Eastern Europe Conference organized by Gaz System SA. This conference underscores the U.S. government’s commitment to working with our European partners to strengthen regional energy security. Enhancing sustainability and energy diversification – diversification of fuels, countries of origin and routes – these are the energy security tasks for Europe. The opening of Poland’s Świnoujście LNG terminal was an important milestone, not only for Poland but for the Central and Eastern European region as well. Liquefied natural gas represents a true source of energy diversification and will be transformative in contributing to European and global energy security. U.S. firms, nine of which are present at this conference, can and will play an important role in bringing LNG to markets in Europe and further afield, providing countries and commercial customers new supply options on more flexible terms than ever before.
