On April 24, 2019, Polskie LNG (currently GAZ-SYSTEM) signed with the Oil and Gas Institute - Polish Research Institute a co-financing contract for the project titled "Extending the functionality of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście" with the grant amount of PLN 461 million from the European Regional Development Fund under the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020. The estimated total value of the project is over PLN 1 billion. The project consists of the following elements:

• Additional regasification installation - increasing the nominal regasification capacity of the LNG Terminal up to 7.5 billion Nm3/year.

• Third LNG process storage tank - increasing the LNG terminal's operational flexibility and optimizing fuel storage process capacity.

• LNG-to-rail transshipment installation - extending the scope of services with the possibility of loading LNG on ISO containers and rail tankers and thus providing new potential customers with access to the fuel.

• Additional jetty for handling the loading and unloading operations - LNG transshipment, loading LNG on bunker vessels, and bunkering service.

Pursuant to Project objectives and assumptions, the project is to deliver output indicator defined under OPI&E 2014-2020, priority axis VII Improvement of energy security, activity 7.1 Development of intelligent storage, transmission and distribution systems as "additional annual capacity of the receiving terminal for LNG arriving by sea freight."

The completion of the co-financed project is scheduled in December 2023.
