The government is fulfilling its policy statement and the Czech Republic is strengthening its long-term LNG energy security

The Czech Republic has taken another crucial step towards ensuring sufficient gas supplies for the future and replacing supplies from Russia. In cooperation with the government, ČEZ Group has contracted long-term annual capacity of 2 billion cubic metres at one of the onshore LNG terminals in Germany. This represents an investment in the further development of the Czech energy sector, and strengthens the energy security of the Czech Republic. The Stade terminal will be located near Hamburg at the mouth of the Elbe River on the North Sea and will be commissioned by its operator, Hanseatic Energy Hub, in mid-2027. The government is thus fulfilling its policy statement, in which it committed itself to seeking a stake in an LNG terminal in a neighbouring country.
