Liquefied natural gas (LNG) volumes at Lithuania’s first and only import terminal in the port of Klaipeda dropped 11.4 percent in the January-November period as compared to the last year.

Deliveries to Lithuania’s LNG terminal are being split between Litgas, a part of state-controlled energy group Lietuvos Energija, Lietuvos Duju Tiekimas, and Lithuanian fertilizer producer Achema.
On the other side, revenues coming from regas and reloading activities from Höegh LNG’s FSRU Independence used as Lithuania’s first import terminal in the port of Klaipeda rose 2 percent to 62.7 million euros ($74.1m) in the period under review.
