Lithuania gets its first LNG cargo

Lithuania has received its first ever cargo of liquefied natural gas at the Klaipeda port onboard the 160,000 cbm Golar Seal.

The 2013-built LNG tanker docked at Höegh LNG’s FSRU Independence this morning, October 28, carrying a cargo from Statoil’s Hammerfest terminal in Norway, shipping data says.

According to shipping data, while sailing to the Klaipeda port, the LNG tanker docked and unloaded about one third of its cargo at the Dutch Gate import terminal.

This is a historic moment for the Baltic state since it begins a new era in the country’s energy imports. Until now, Lithuania was completely dependent on gas supplies from Russian gas giant Gazprom.

Lithuania’s President Dalia Grybauskaitė said yesterday at the welcoming ceremony that the Klaipėda LNG terminal, if necessary, will also be able to cover 90 percent of the three Baltic States’ gas supply needs.
