Lithuania gets Norwegian LNG cargo

Lithuania gets Norwegian LNG cargo

Lithuania received a cargo of liquefied natural gas from Statoil’s Hammerfest LNG facility in Norway on Sunday. 

According to the port data, the 140,000 cbm Arctic Voyager delivered the cargo to Höegh LNG’s FSRU Independence serving as Lithuania’s LNG import terminal in the port of Klaipeda.

Lithuania started importing LNG in December 2014 in order to reduce its dependence on Russian gas supplies.

The Baltic country revised the LNG import deal it has with Statoil in January cutting the price by 15-20 percent. The contract has been extended from five to 10 years while the volume Lithuania will import from Norway increased from 2.7 billion cubic meters to 3.7 bcm.

All previous deliveries to Lithuania’s LNG terminal were strictly for Litgas, a part of state-controlled energy group Lietuvos Energija. However, as of February this year, the imported volumes are split between Litgas, Lietuvos Duju Tiekimas, and Lithuanian fertilizer producer Achema.
