Poland seeks to resume Russia’s suspended gas supply


The government of Poland and gas companies were attempting to restore gas flow to some municipalities after Russia declared to suspend the gas supply when Warsaw slapped it with sanctions over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The gas supply suspension was a separate development from Russia’s decision to stop the gas supplies in Poland.


Piotr Mueller, a spokesperson of Poland, asserted that Poland expected the firm, Novatek Green Energy, to comply with immediate demand to make its pipelines available to Polish companies that seek to transfer their gas to the ten affected areas, along with the popular Baltic Sea resort of Leba.

Mueller warned that Novatek could face legal action under the country’s crisis management laws if the company didn’t immediately comply.

Mueller said, “It all depends on whether this Russian firm, linked to Russia, will cooperate adequately; whether the employees, acting on some instructions, will not be trying to block this process in some way.”

A subsidiary group controlled by OAO Novatek, Russia’s second-largest natural gas producer Novatek was put on Poland’s list of sanctions against 50 Russian and Belarusian businesses earlier this week.

The sanctions are planned to scrap the outflow of money from Poland to Russia’s war coffers. They stand on the top of European Union Measures in response to Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine.

Moreover, Polish gas companies PGNiG, PSG and Gaz-System asserted that they are prepared to convey gas to the affected areas but need Novatek’s infrastructure to do so.
