Lithuania, the largest of the three Baltic nations, received a cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Statoil’s Hammerfest liquefaction plant in Norway.

The 147,980-cbm Arctic Princess, owned by Höegh LNG and on a long-term charter with Statoil, arrived in the port of Klaipeda where the Independence FSRU is located on Thursday morning, the port data shows.

Lithuania regularly imports LNG from Norway under a supply deal with Statoil. The imported volumes are split between Litgas, Lietuvos Duju Tiekimas, and Lithuanian fertilizer producer Achema.

Worth mentioning, the country also recently took a spot cargo of LNG from the US. The cargo was delivered aboard the Clean Ocean carrier for Lithuania’s natural gas trading company Lietuvos Dujų Tiekimas from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility.

Lithuania started importing the chilled fuel in December 2014 in order to reduce its dependence on Russian pipeline gas supplies.

The LNG terminal currently provides Lithuania with roughly half of its gas needs with the rest being sourced from Russian Gazprom.
