Mantas Dubauskas, spokesman for the energy minister, confirmed to BNS that the hearing would take place on Jul. 1–10 and the final decision might be expected late this year or early next year.

Energy Minister Rokas Masiulis, the ministry’s officials and its lawyers should participate in the hearing.

In October 2012, the Lithuanian government filed a claim against Gazprom demanding approximately 1.4 billion euros for overcharging of gas supplies between 2014 and 2012.

In what might be an attempt to influence the Stockholm arbitration court and, possibly, appease EU regulators, Gazprom cut the price of natural gas supplies to Lietuvos Dujos, which sells gas to all household users in the country, by more than 20 percent in May 2014.

Early in April, Gazprom withdrew its arbitration suit against Lithuania over the implementation of the European Union’s (EU) Third Energy Package.
