President Dalia Grybauskaitė on Monday signed a decree to appoint Masiulis, 45, as energy minister on Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius' recommendation.

Masiulis, an economist by profession, said at the start of the week that his first task was to ensure smooth completion of the Klaipėda LNG terminal project.

Both Grybauskaitė and Social Democratic Prime Minister Butkevičius have expressed their confidence in Masiulis on more than one occasion.
