The liquefied natural gas (LNG) floating storage, which at the beginning of the year was solemnly named “The Independence”, and will start functioning this December, will be stationed alongside the quay on the island of Kiaulės Nugara (Pig’s Back). However, if necessary, it will be able to depart from the quay and transport gas, says Indra Milinienė, communications manager of Klaipėdos Nafta, the company implementing the LNG Terminal project.
