Jerzy Kwieciński leaves PGNiG. Reasons for dismissal

Jerzy Kwieciński’s resignation from the position of the president of PGNiG is the aftermath of a conflict with the president of Orlen, Daniel Obajtek, and writes “Rzeczpospolita”.

Jerzy Kwieciński resigned as the president of the management board of PGNiG, the company announced on Wednesday. Kwieciński was the president Polish Oil and Gas Industry from January 2020. The reason for the case is to be “personal matters”.

As Rzeczpospolita writes, the former president of PGNiG initially accepted the idea of ​​building a national champion around PKN Orlen, but later his enthusiasm for the merger with the oil group waned. Let us recall that Orlen has already taken over Energa, work is underway to take over Lotos, and then it is the turn of PGNiG.

The journal indicates that this was supposed to be the basis of the conflict with the current head of Orlen, Daniel Obajtek. “The gas company was implementing its own plans – announced a strategy for the development of renewable energy sources, plans for the development of the hydrogen business or interest in participating in the privatization process of the Ukrainian energy sector, we read.

Rzeczpospolita adds that “the tensions on the line with Orlen meant that Jerzy Kwieciński he had been pressured to resign before. “
