Mr Kensbok’s “mission” will be focused on strengthening the role of liquified natural gas (LNG) and natural gas as a key element of the ongoing decarbonisation process in the EU, while supporting the energy revolution based on low and zero-emission gases, GAZ-SYSTEM said.

“Together with the new strategy of the company recently adopted by GAZ-SYSTEM, we are becoming a leader – both in Poland and Europe – in the field of sustainable decarbonisation of our economy,” said Mr Kensbok.

Mr Kensbok has been the VP of GAZ-SYSTEM’s Management Board since 1 January of this year.
