Lithuania will import more gas from Norway than from Russia in 2016 for the first time after closing a number of supply deals with Statoil facilitated by its liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure, Lithuania's energy minister said on Monday.
Russia's gas behemoth Gazprom will have to be more flexible in order to sell gas in Lithuania, Energy Minister Rokas Masiulis said on Tuesday, commenting on a liquefied natural gas (LNG) purchase deal reached between Achema, the country's largest gas consumer, and Norway's Statoil.
Achema, Lithuanian fertilizer producer and the biggest gas consumer in the country, concluded a gas supply deal with Norway's Statoil on Tuesday. Statoil will deliver liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the company in tankers via the LNG terminal in Klaipėda.
Lithuania's gas company Litgas has concluded negotiations with Norway's Statoil to review it's five-year liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply contract, substantially cutting maintenance costs of Lithuania's LNG terminal and the price for gas consumers, Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius says.
