Höegh LNG’s 170,000 cbm FSRU “Independence” has arrived at the Klaipeda port in Lithuania in October this year.
The second of the five FSRUs that Höegh LNG has ordered from Hyundai Heavy Industries serves as Lithuania’s first import terminal under a long-term charter to Klaipedos Nafta.
Until now, Lithuania has been completely dependent on gas imports from Russian gas giant Gazprom. The Independence FSRU now represents an opportunity to diversify Lithuania’s import sources providing increased security to the Baltic states. If necessary, the FSRU is able to cover 90% of the three Baltic State’s gas supply needs.
