U.S. LNG Arrives in Lithuania

Reuters reports that a cargo of LNG from Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, La. has reached Lithuania. According to Reuters, the LNG is for clients of a Lithuanian state-owned trader that are located in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. The Lithuanian government estimates it will import half of its gas consumption in 2017 as LNG, mostly from Norway’s Statoil, with the remainder to be imported via a pipeline from Russia. Lithuania aims to reduce its dependence on Russia, and more U.S. LNG supplies from Cheniere Energy are expected to be shipped to Lithuania next year.
