We need an ally in matters of shale gas – Komorowski!
- We look forward to the shale gas, it can be a great chance for Poland, – the president said.
In his opinion, Poland should find allies in this matter. During the press conference, the president was asked, as he refers to information that the Bulgarian parliament adopted a decision prohibiting the use of the technology of hydraulic splitting rocks to search for oil and gas, which in practice means a ban on the search for shale gas in Bulgaria.
– We look forward to the shale gas, this is a great chance for Poland – the president said. – The fact that other countries, including our part of Europe have expressed interest in technology and prospect for new sources of energy can be very beneficial for our country. Here Poland can find allies in the fight against those who – for various reasons – I would like to reduce, not increase the chances of discovery of shale gas reservoirs.
According to him, reducing the chances of discovery of shale gas reservoirs would be contrary to the interests of Poland.
– I’ll be glad if there were any signals that indicate that we can rely on this interest by other countries, EU members – the president said. Learn more about domain registration just now!
Previously «NewsBalt» reported that the summer of 2011 the Polish town of Kutno (100 km west of Warsaw) was found in Poland’s largest gas field. According to the Director of the Department exploration PGNiG Peter Glinyaka, Kutnovskoe field is comparable with those in the richness of deposits in the North Sea off the coast of Great Britain and Holland. According to various estimates, in the depths of Poland can be stored for several hundred billion cubic meters of shale gas.
Following the discovery of shale gas reservoirs Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski questioned in gas relations with Russia. In particular, the minister told reporters: “Is it worth spending millions on transporting gas (it is the Russian projects NABUCCO and South Stream. -« NewsBalt »), if we have it at home.”
