Lithuania’s first commercial LNG cargo to arrive at the end of December

First commercial cargo from Norway to Lithuania is expected by the end of December.

Planning to cut its dependence on Russian gas, Lithuania expects to cover about a fifth of its annual needs in 2015 through imported LNG.

The first commercial cargo from Statoil is expected to arrive on December 22 or December 23, according to a Klaipedos Nafta spokeswoman, reports Reuters.

The first cargo will have the capacity of 140,000 cbm of LNG, according to the report.
