Lithuania’s LNG terminal receives first commercial cargo

Lithuania's LNG terminal receives first comercial cargo

Lithuania’s LNG terminal at the port of Klaipeda has reached another milestone since the official start of operations earlier this month. 

According to Klaipeda port data, the 155,000 cbm Arctic Aurora LNG carrier delivered the first commercial cargo of liquefied natural gas from Statoil’s Hammerfest facility, on Tuesday.

Earlier in October, Höegh LNG’s FSRU Independence received the first cargo that was delivered to Klaipeda for testing purposes. It was also delivered from Norway onboard the 160,000 cbm Golar Seal.

The first commercial cargo signs the beginning of Lithuania’s independence from Russian gas. Lithuania’s President Dalia Grybauskaitė was recently quoted saying that the Klaipeda LNG terminal, if necessary, will be able to cover 90 percent of the gas supply needs of Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia, which were previously 100 percent dependent on Russian gas.
