Lithuania is increasingly buying Russian liquefied gas

In 2014, Lithuania specially acquired the Independence LNG terminal ship and delivered it to the port of Klaipeda in order to get rid of the "Russian gas dependence" and get the long-awaited "energy freedom". However, as the edition writes "Sputnik Lithuania"On September 27, 2020, the gas carrier Coral Fungia arrived at the port of Klaipeda, it delivered the cargo in the form of LNG produced at the plant of the Russian company Novatek in Vysotsk.

The publication noted that the ship with LNG cargo from Russia that came to Klaipeda is already the fifth in September this year. By the end of the month, the arrival of the sixth such tanker with the same cargo is expected.

Note that the presence of an LNG terminal is expensive for Vilnius. The Lithuanian state-owned company Klaipėdos nafta (operator of oil products and LNG terminals) annually pays 60 million euros to the Norwegian company Hoegh LNG for its lease. This is without taking into account the associated costs of maintaining the facility. By 2024, the Lithuanians want to fully buy out the leased LNG terminal ship or another one.

Since the spring of 2019, LNG supplies to Lithuania from Russia have become regular. Vilnius decided to diversify purchases of Norwegian products. At the same time, there have been only a few LNG supplies from the United States over the past six years. The Lithuanians were very upset by the American prices.

    These Russophobes don't have to sell anything at all. And if you sell, then on certain conditions (Russian language, schools). But for our government, money is more important. The hucksters!

      So Russia is not selling them anything! There is an interesting scheme.
      Lithuanians, quite possibly, buy gas from America, they turn to the trader, who buys a batch of liquefied gas for Lithuania. After that, the company, which is supposed to conditionally supply this LNG from Louisiana to Lithuania, negotiates with the Russian company supplying this LNG to them.
      As a result, the Balts pay for gas as with the delivery from America, however, due to its actual delivery from Russia, the US company gets the opportunity to increase its profits by reducing the transport leverage. At the same time, a similar gas self-deception of Lithuania allows Russian companies to continue making money, despite the external Russophobia of Vilnius ....

    Che did not understand. Last year, this terminal and liquefied gas storage facilities on the shore were sold to Poles. And now the terminal in Klaipeda is a headache for Poles, not Lithuanians

    All these gas suppliers have lost their brains. For green mummies ready to sell the Creatures. You have run out of sanctions, or the abuse of the Chukhons does not hang on the gate ... 30 years the demshiz kept the Chukhonsky ports. NATO allies to the wall ...

    You so want it. All our authorities know. And to whom they sell and why! And if they don't know, why do we need such power? Only for the Russian-speaking, in this Baltics, our rulers do not invent any schemes for support!

    Liquefied gas from Russia is much more democratic than pipe gas from Russia)) And more expensive!

    A joyful and cheerful article, they say they will not go anywhere .... as they did not leave, but they took and will take gas from Russia. And next to this article is another article, they say, but father correctly transfers its cargo flows to the Russian Ust-Luga, there is nothing to financially support these Russophobes and Belarusophobes. Here, in the comments, they correctly hint at the essence of this situation, they say, like it is necessary for some of the Russian politicians to wear cowards or remove a cross
