ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION - PETITION 3

Providing information on immediate impact of the project on the environment, including the impact of the breakwater on ocean currents and the resultant sand drifting onto the seabed (currently hindering navigation and boats’ launching); environmental monitoring system, particularly of air and soil; impact of the increased vessel traffic in the port following the start-up of the terminal.

POLSKIE LNG’s RESPONSE

·        In terms of the impact of the breakwater on changes in ocean currents drifting sand on the seabed which hinders navigation it must be emphasized that for the maintenance of the Szczecin - Świnoujście fairway the responsible entity is Maritime Office in Szczecin, the institution acting as an investor in the construction of a breakwater for the external port in Świnoujście.

·        The issue of environmental monitoring is discussed in section ENVIRONMENT - PETITION 1

·        The results of monitoring will be published on PLNG’s website. The most important information on the impact of the LNG terminal on the environment is continuously updated in the section "LNG Terminal and the environment" (http://www.polskielng.pl/?id=880).

·        The issue of increased vessel traffic in the port area following the terminal’s start-up has been analysed by an independent consulting firm - Ernst & Young on behalf of PLNG, and the findings were published in a report titled "Impact of the LNG terminal and associated infrastructure on social and economic environment in Western Pomerania." The analysis demonstrates that the number of vessels envisaged for unloading at the LNG Terminal will depend on the number of contractors, i.e. market demand for liquefied natural gas regasification services. Consequently, the number of LNG carriers arriving at the port under the basic scenario (5 billion m3 capacity) and with terminal capacity utilization rate at about 65 % may amount to approx. 25

·        Detailed results of the analysis titled "Impact of the LNG terminal and associated infrastructure on social and economic environment in Western Pomerania" regarding the impact of the project on sea transport will be published on PLNG’s website.

INDICATORS:

·        The annual update of information on the impact of the LNG terminal on the environment and monitoring results with special emphasis on impact on soil and air condition will be published on the company's website in the section titled "LNG Terminal and the environment."

IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS PETITION: Contact with the Municipal Police Station in Świnoujście was established. Polskie LNG has received a formal written request for financial support of monitoring system installation. Implementation of the grant agreement is planned in 2014.

SAFETY AND EDUCATION – PETITION 2

Ensuring sufficient care and attention when designing the course of the water conduit associated with the implementation of the ORV (regasification) system which will run in the vicinity of the fort.

POLSKIE LNG’S RESPONSE

Due to the seawater temperatures in Świnoujscie, PLNG has decided to resign from the ORV system designed for regasification of liquefied natural gas using sea water.

Regasification is a process of changing the physical state of LNG from a liquid to gas by heating the liquefied substance. There are many technologies applied in LNG re-gasification process. In most countries, seawater (or just ORV system  - Open Rack Vaporizer) system is used to heat LNG, but the Baltic Sea is too cold - the system works at an average seawater temperature of 7-8 degrees Celsius, which means that in Poland the system would operate for about half a year.

Therefore, the SCV regasification technology will be applied at the LNG terminal in Świnoujście which in comparison with alternative technologies demonstrates smaller impact on the marine environment. It is used, among others, at Europe's largest regasification terminal - the UK's South Hook.

Regasification consists in heating the liquefied fuel to ambient temperature of min. 1°C. In Świnoujście, the applied technology will use water heated system, which will be heated by burning natural gas

Local Policy

LOCAL POLICY- PETITION 1

Agreement with the Municipal Authorities and demarcation of the access road to the lighthouse and the drawing up a written commitment by PLNG representatives to maintain the access roads to the forts and the lighthouse.

POLSKIE LNG’s RESPONSE

The goal of Polskie LNG company is not and will never be to close the access road to the Lighthouse and the Gerhard’s Fort. The letter of 4 March 2013 issued by PLNG to the Mayor of Świnoujście may serve as evidence, as well as the communication to the public published on the same day in a form of a statement of the Company.

Polskie LNG does not intend to close Ku Morzu St. at the time of unloading the ship, because this operation has no effect on the place where the pipebridge intersects with the road. In connection with the construction works which are to be carried out at this place, there may be short-time closures of the street during the works. In such circumstances, the obstruction of Ku Morzu St. will be in accordance with the conditions set out inter alia in the relevant decision of the Mayor of Świnoujście. During the works on the traffic lane, the EPC Contractor is required to establish temporary traffic organization and on this basis to ensure collision-free communication during the works.

It is worth noting that Polskie LNG plans to prolong its cooperation with the Lighthouse  and Fort Gerhard, which means that impeded access to these places is not in the Company’s interest.

The final decision on the status of the road at the stage of plant's operation will be taken by third parties during acquiring by the Company the permits to use the facility. At the construction site, inspections by Police, Fire Services, representatives of the Municipal Emergency Management Office will be carried out and depending on their opinion the road will remain open or temporary closures may arise.

LOCAL POLICY- PETITION 2

Providing information on the development of services associated with the project over the next 20 years, as well as the development of the very installation (its possible extension).

POLSKIE LNG’s RESPONSE

Polskie LNG conducts a number of studies related with the potential development of services and  consequent need for installation development. In the late 2012 and at the beginning of 2013 a market screening procedure was carried out, whose objective was to determine the demand of the potential LNG market users for the expansion of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście, including the increased regasification capacity (the fundamental function of the terminal) and the provision of additional services. Additional services analysed in the course of market screening procedure would comprise:

• reloading LNG to tank trucks and / or rail and / or smaller vessels

• LNG fuel vessels bunkering,

• LNG storage services at the terminal in the years 2015-2029.

22 Polish and foreign entities participated in the survey, including gas and energy trading companies.

LNG market screening results indicate:

• a significant increase in demand for regasification capacity, as well as other services that

could be provided by the LNG terminal in Świnoujście. The identified market potential justifies the decision on development of a third storage tank. In 2020 The demand for services together with the already allocated regasification capacity shall approximate the maximum capacity of the terminal after its potential expansion.

• The need for additional services such as reloading LNG on road tankers which was included in the project. However, such reloading may be provided only to users using the terminal and regasification services up to the volume not exceeding 5% of the unloaded LNG cargo.

Among the suggested additional services which could be provided by the terminal, not envisaged by the current construction project, and whose provision will require expansion of the terminal in Świnoujście, include:

• reloading LNG into smaller vessels - very high potential, since the reported demand for

large volumes of reloaded gas. Interest in such services was recorded in the Baltic Sea region (Scandinavia, the Baltic States, Germany) provide the potential for establishing a major transshipment hub at the terminal in Świnoujście.

• The demand for bunkering vessels with LNG at the terminal in Świnoujście - a new EU directive indicates that gas is the preferred fuel to propel sea vessels due to lower emissivity of CO2 into the atmosphere, which will affect the development of the LNG market for bunkering fuel in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. The demand for LNG as fuel will grow in the coming years, and the existing competition is not significant.

INDICATORS:

Publishing on the Company's website at least 3 publications, analyses and study excerpts concerning additional features of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście.

DURATION:

• By mid-2014.

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PETITION: Analyses re. additional features of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście are available HERE and on education portal www.lng.edu.pl under the following links: lng.edu.pl/pl/LNG-na-Świecie/Nie-tylko-do-ogrzewania;http://lng.edu.pl/pl/Baza-wiedzy/Zastosowanie-LNG ; lng.edu.pl/pl/Baza-wiedzy/Dziennik-Gazeta-Prawna---odc--5

LOCAL POLICY - PETITION 12

PLNG’s together with local authorities' lobbying initiatives aimed at increasing the accessibility of communication in Warszów and Świnoujście and building a connection between Wolin and Uznam.

POLSKIE LNG's RESPONSE: any lobbying activities, including the accessibility of communication in Warszów and Świnoujście and the construction of a tunnel between the islands of Wolin and Uznam remain beyond the capacity of Polskie LNG, being the company responsible for the construction and operation of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście.

Both lobbying and direct financing of projects related to public road infrastructure does not lie within the competence of PLNG. The only method that PLNG may employ to contribute to improvement of transport accessibility in Świnoujście is by paying taxes, in particular the  property tax that can be invested in municipal road infrastructure improvement.

It is worth noting that today Polskie LNG is a major property tax payer; the tax for 2013 amounted to PLN 400 thousand. In order to increase the accessibility of communication in Warszów district, Polskie LNG signed an agreement with the Mayor of Świnoujście regarding the redevelopment of Ku Morzu St. which runs along the site of the LNG terminal and is connected with the construction of the car park and exit to the beach (discussed in detail in LOCAL POLICY - PETITION 3).

LOCAL POLICY - PETITION 13

POLSKIE LNG's RESPONSE: In terms of upgrading local roads and a section of S3 expressway it should be clearly emphasized that this type of activity extends beyond the powers and scope of the operation of Polskie LNG being the company responsible for the construction and operation of the LNG terminal. Modernization of public roads and expressways remains within the scope of responsibility of the local government or public administration bodies including the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways in Szczecin who is responsible for the S3  section. In order to increase the accessibility of communication in Warszów district, Polskie LNG signed an agreement with the Mayor of Świnoujście re. the redevelopment of Ku Morzu Street which goes along the site of the LNG terminal and is connected with the construction of the car park and exit to the beach (discussed in detail in LOCAL POLICY - PETITION 3).

This is also referred to in the Company's internal regulations. Another equally important priority are the projects for the development of the entire city and Świnoujście and West Pomeranian Province. PLNG is ready to confirm the priority locations for social initiatives in the statute of the planned Polskie LNG  Fund, if the idea of its creation finds approval of the key project stakeholders.

LOCAL POLICY - PETITION 31

PLNG’s involvement in joint initiatives with the Local Fishery Group "Szczecin Lagoon" allowing for fundraising (external - from the EU) and further joint investment. PLNG  would be obligated to provide for use of the facilities established by means of these funds for a period of minimum 5 years.

Changing the content of the postulate: "3.1.13 PLNG's involvement in projects with a large contribution from the European Union (85%), which could serve the community of Prawobrzeże. Such actions are perfectly supported under Operational Programme "FISH 2007-2013" implemented in Świnoujście through the Local Fishery Group "Szczecin Lagoon" (allowing for implementation of investment projects in the field of educational, cultural, recreational and sports infrastructure). PLNG, as a direct beneficiary of the grants would be obligated to provide at least a 5-year period of the so-called sustainability of the project, providing after this period the property built under this programme to the municipality or organization of their choice. These types of grants may extend the coverage and effectiveness of PLNG's pro-social activities in Prawobrzeże "

POLSKIE LNG's RESPONSE: After a detailed analysis of provisions of the "FISH Operational Programme 2007-2013" PLNG identified significant obstacles to the company's involvement in a project funded under this program. Pursuant to Polskie LNG's articles of association, the company is currently unable to get involved in fishing or fisheries. The company does not consider conducting such activities in the future. Polskie LNG SA is currently involved financially in the construction of a massive investment in the recreational area near the Municipal Community Center in Warszów, whose estimated cost is about one million zloty. Accordingly, with regard to the provisions of Fish Operational Programme 2007-2014, we see no possibility to engage in activities that could be funded under this program.

As far as the ability to jointly engage in initiatives with the Local Fishery Group "Szczecin Lagoon" is concerned, we see no obstacles to cooperation in the future as part of the Polskie LNG Fund which is to be launched in mid-2014. We are open to any joint initiatives aimed at supporting the development of the local community. However, the involvement of the Company in any action must be preceded by an compliance analysis of such action with the obligations under the financing already obtained for the Terminal construction project from the EU funds, as well as the obligations imposed on the Company by the project co-financing institutions.

LOCAL POLICY - PETITION 34

Analysis of the possible use of LNG as fuel for local ferries and other Baltic ferries and using the oversupply of gas (in the future) in Świnoujście ferries.

POLSKIE LNG RESPONSE To answer the question of whether the future city of Świnoujście ferries or other Baltic ferries will be powered by LNG, two issues must be considered:

• Polskie LNG as a terminal investor will not be the owner of the LNG tanks or gas after regasification. Thus, the proper addressee of this question should be PGNiG and / or other prospective clients of the terminal.

• The need to adjust Baltic ferries to receive LNG from road tankers or to bunker LNG from a platform located on the breakwater.

Currently, there are already about 40 LNG-propelled ships in operation globally. These are mainly small vessels such as: roro ferries, offshore vessels, patroling vessels, tugboats. All operate mainly along the coast of Norway.

LOCAL POLICY - PETITION 36

Considering the risks from NordStream and planned gas pipeline between Poland and Norway, and the impact of the company's activities on these projects.

POLSKIE LNG's RESPONSE: Polskie LNG constantly monitors all external circumstances that may pose a threat to the construction of the first LNG terminal in Central and Eastern Europe. It should be emphasized that the Nord Stream pipeline in its current form does not pose any threat to the construction of the terminal, as well as the access for vessels entering the Świnoujście LNG terminal is not obstructed.

The draught of the largest methane Q-Flex vessel, which will be arriving to the LNG terminal, is 13.5 meters. The Nord Stream pipeline in the shallowest point is placed at a depth of 15 m, which ensures the safety of shipping vessels. Only the fairway at the unloading platforms needs to undergo dredging due to stilting. The company will carry out such an operation before the arrival of the first LNG carrier and repeat it in the future if necessary.
