The second tanker with liquefied natural gas from Russia entered the port of Lithuania this December, as reported with reference to the Marinetraffic portal data.
On Saturday, the Coral Fungia gas carrier left the Russian Vysotsk, where the Novatek plant is located. The ship arrived in Klaipeda on Sunday morning. It is specified that 9.5 thousand cubic metres of fuel should be delivered on it. Last time, Russian LNG was brought to the republic in the middle of last week.
As reminded, the LNG terminal in Lithuania started operating in 2014. According to the authorities, it should help the country get rid of the “monopoly” of Gazprom. At the same time, the costs of this energy facility are extremely tangible for the country. Last fall, the Ministry of Energy had to draft a bill designed to reduce the cost of fuel supplies.
