  • The European Commission has approved EU funding worth €130 million to expand a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal in northwest Poland, triggering the ire of green activists who oppose continuing EU support for fossil fuel projects.
  • By 2022, the US is poised to become the world’s biggest exporter of LNG.
  • Moreover, drafts indicate that the Commission will give support to at least 55 new fossil gas infrastructure projects across Europe as part of its new list of priority energy projects known as ‘Projects of Common Interest’ (PCI).
