Polish utility Enea is considering a joint venture with Poland’s largest gas company gas PGNiG to build a series of gas fired power plants.

Enea chairman Maciej Owczarek said that the companies were considering building “not one, but several gas-fired power plants.

Owczarek slao told Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita that Enea was looking into shale gas opportunities – Poland has the largest reserves of shale gas in Europe and is the EU-s most pro-shale advocate.

“It would be unreasonable for Enea to remain completely disengaged from shale gas. We could, for example, start participating at the level of prospection or later, purchasing a gas from a cheap source. We shouldn’t rush with the decision.”
