Poland Looking at Legal Reform to Boost Gas Security


Poland is working on special legal measures surrounding its gas market to allow a swifter reaction if the supply situation deteriorates further.

  • "An exceptional situation on global energy markets caused by Russia's aggression on Ukraine and surging gas prices... create a necessity for special legal measures that allow for a real-time reaction if the situation deteriorates further," the government said.
  • Proposals include allowing gas trade outwith the Warsaw exchange and contingency gas storage plans. The country is boosting its storage capacity which is low at 3.2 bcm versus annual demand of 20 bcm.
  • Poland has been cut off from Russian gas since April. Domestic storage is nearly 100% full but the country will be impacted by cross-border deliveries if flows to Europe stop.
