Lithuania completely abandons russian gas imports
Seeking full energy independence from Russian gas, in response to Russia's energy blackmail in Europe and the war in Ukraine, Lithuania has completely abandoned Russian gas: Lithuania's gas transmission system has been operating without Russian gas imports since the beginning of this month.

This is confirmed by the data of the Lithuanian gas transmission system operator Amber Grid, which shows that on 2 April the import of Russian gas for Lithuania's needs through the Lithuanian-Belarusian interconnection was equal to 0 MWh.

All lithuanian gas demand is satisfied through klaipeda liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminalklaipeda liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal. The official schedules planned by the liquefied natural gas terminal operator Klaipedos Nafta indicate that three large cargoes of liquefied natural gas will reach the terminal each month, which are planned to be enough for all customers. For the next period, customers have placed orders for gas transportation only from the terminal. If necessary, gas can also be delivered to Lithuania via the gas link with Latvia, and from 1 May – through the gas link with Poland.

Minister of Energy Dainius Kreivys says that this is a turning point in the history of Lithuania's energy independence: "We are the first EU country among Gazprom's supply countries to gain independence from Russian gas supplies, and this is the result of a multi-year coherent energy policy and timely infrastructure decisions".

In these circumstances, Russia's demand to pay for gas in rubles is meaningless, as Lithuania no longer orders Russian gas and no longer plans to pay for it. In response, Russian gas supply company Gazprom informed Amber Grid that it no longer wants to import gas from Russia via the Lithuanian-Belarusian link.

Gas in transit through Lithuania continues to be transported for the needs of Königsberg, but in a different technical mode than usual, ensuring only the transfer of the amount of gas required for transit.

About the Klaipedos Nafta LNG Terminal

The LNG Terminal will allow emerging of natural gas market in Lithuania, as at present, this country imports the entire quantity of natural gas from only one supplier (natural gas from the Russian Federation is supplied via only one main pipeline, laid across the Republic of Belarus).
The Supplier of Russian natural gas exploits its domineering position, due to which gas prices in Lithuania are one of the highest in Europe and exceeds prices in international markets.
The LNG Terminal will allow Lithuania to provide itself with natural gas, not depending on only one supplier. Thus, Lithuania will implement the EU directive coming into effect since December 2014, by which implementation of new alternative solutions to gas supply activity are promoted.
