Israel could supply gas to Lithuania in the future, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė said during a meeting with Israeli businessmen in Vilnius on Tuesday.

The recently-discovered gas fields could become one of the alternative to Russian gas, the Press Service of the Lithuanian President said.

The then Israeli Energy and Water Resources Minister Uzi Landau spoke about opportunities to supply gas to Lithuania during his visit to the Baltic country back in April, 2012. He then said, however, it would be possible no earlier than in 2018.

Now, Lithuania receives all gas from Russia’s Gazprom through a gas pipeline going via Belarus and is building a LNG terminal in the western port of Klaipėda that will allow the country to get gas supplies from Norway’s Statoil and other Western companies.

Two large off-shore gas fields have been discovered in Israel in recent years. The country is still weighing how much gas it needs itself and how much of it the country could export, mainly to European countries.
