Lithuania's energy security investment equals loss to hypothetical gas embargo, study finds

If, hypothetically, Russia imposed a gas embargo on Lithuania and the country would have to look for alternatives at a 50-to-100-percent surcharge, then in the first year of such an embargo Lithuania's economy would lose LTL 1.6-1.9 billion (EUR 467-550 million), which is about what the country has invested in the pipeline connections with Poland and the LNG terminal.
