Recently Peter Nemsky resigns as Minister in the Prime Minister’s Chancellery and Government Commissioner for Strategic Energy Infrastructure It does not end the expected personnel changes in the government and state-owned energy companies. The fate of Deputy Minister of State Assets Pyotr Bezek is uncertainWho is the government commissioner for the transformation of energy and coal mining companies. As the “Coal Minister”, he has the best knowledge of what is happening in the Polish mining industry, why Polish mines are inefficient today and what are the plans of coal producers for the coming months. Despite this, he is completely invisible in the government’s fight against the energy crisis – unlike the Minister of Climate and Environment, Anna Moskwa.that implements the state’s energy policy.
Nor was he present at Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s recent meeting with the Katowice miners’ unions about Mining transformation. On the other hand, the former Minister of Energy, Krzysztof Chorzewski, was present there and, according to our sources, may take the position of Deputy Minister in the Ministry of State Assets, headed by Jacek Sassen. Interestingly, No one invited Bezeq to this meeting.
– Tchórzewski obtained and accepted an offer to join the Ministry of State Assets. In the current situation, we must forget about the EU Green Deal and return to the concept of building energy security on the basis of Polish coal. Tchórzewski has extensive experience in this field, so he will help the government in planning carbon Investments – Hear from someone from the PiS circles.
However, Tchórzewski’s appearance in the MAP does not necessarily mean Pyzik’s resignation. – I am not aware of anyone talking to the Deputy Minister about his possible dismissal. It is clear that the Moscow Minister is committed to fighting the energy crisis, because she is responsible for managing energy in the government. while Tchórzewski’s entry into the game has a purely political dimension – Says our source in the map.
On the other hand, the miners’ unions said directly after their last conversation with Prime Minister Morawiecki, in which Bezek was absent: We have a big jurisdiction mess in the government.
– The presence of Krzysztof Chrzywski at the meeting is some hope that perhaps it will be better, because under Minister Chorzewski, the entire fuel and energy sector has been doing well. However, this is the question of whether Minister Tchórzewski will appear in the government, and what his powers will be. We don’t know, The internal frictions in the power camp overwhelm all. U.S. too – Dominic Collors, head of Silesia-Debrowski “Solidarity”, commented immediately after the meeting with the Prime Minister.
The turmoil in the coal and gas market is not the only energy challenge for the government. The process aimed at the grand merger of the state giants: Orlen, Lotos, and then PGNiG is currently underway. This includes Minister Piotr Naimski’s recent loss of office by blocking the process, prompted by Orlen’s president, Daniel Obajtek. His job was taken by a Morawiecki man – Matthew Berger.
As the government’s Commissioner for Strategic Energy Infrastructure, Berger oversees the nation’s major businessesThis is Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (operator of the national power grid), Gaz-System (operator of the national gas grid), PERN (operator of oil infrastructure) and Polish nuclear power plants, which are preparing to build from the first in Poland nuclear power plant. There is talk in government circles that there is a tug of war between Prime Minister Morawiki, Minister Moscow and Minister Sassin to fill the most important positions in these major state-owned enterprises with their personalities.
behind the scenes The first to be changed is the head of Gaz-System, Thomas Stobio. As a trusted Nemsky man, he also became the head of the Polskie Elektrownie Nucleowe.
Gaz-System is implementing one of the most important infrastructure investments in the country – the construction of the Baltic pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark with gas deposits on the Norwegian shelf. In addition, the company is investing in the expansion of the LNG terminal in Swinoujesi and in the construction of a floating terminal in the Gulf of Gdansk. Polish nuclear power plants also play an important role – a reactor supplier for the Polish power plant will be selected later this year, and among the government’s preferences so far American Westinghouse.
