“The legitimacy of her demands will be determined during negotiations.

And also, if the negotiations do not lead to a mutually satisfactory result, in the course of legal proceedings.

PGNiG has already filed similar claims.

However, as far as I remember, her latest lawsuits concerning financial issues were not very successful for this enterprise.

As for prices, now many will try to revise them.

But we must understand that the global shortage of supply against the background of growing demand lies at the heart of the current events in a global sense, ”Frolov said.

He noted that the situation in the EU is aggravating due to the fact that earlier in the European Union they began "to insist on the abandonment of the oil peg when determining prices in favor of pegging to spot quotations."

“That is, if in Asia the oil peg provides about 75% of the volumes supplied to these regions, then in Europe the price of almost 100% of gas depends on spot quotations.

Which, of course, hits the economies of all EU countries and Poland, in particular.

But instead of trying to reach an agreement with Gazprom in a different way, instead of trying to dodge and return the oil tie, Poland again decides to follow the path of confrontation, ”the expert added.

Earlier, the Polish energy company PGNiG announced that it is continuing its efforts "to revise the terms of prices for natural gas supplies under a long-term contract with Gazprom."
