During the first three days 2.7 million cubic meters of gas were supplied from the LNG Terminal to the Gas Transmission System of AB Amber Grid

At 15:00 hours of 15 November 2014, Lithuania's natural gas transmission system operator, AB Amber Grid received in its system the first test shipment of natural gas from the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal  in Klaipėda.

During the course of three days, operating at a weekend and working day mode, the LNG Terminal re-gasified and injected into the Gas Transmission System 2.7 million cubic meters of natural gas. This represents 11.2 percent of the total quantity of natural gas consumed by Lithuanian consumers during the course of three days.

The reception of gas from the LNG Terminal to the Gas Transmission System is the first time in the history of Lithuania and the Baltic Region when gas was supplied not only through the gas transmission pipeline from Russia, but also from an alternative gas supply source.

"The three-day experience in organising the LNG reception process for the first time has proved that we are working in the right direction, and our Gas Transmission System successfully deals with arrangement of the operative technological management process to ensure a smooth reception of the planned natural gas quantities from the LNG Terminal. Specialists of AB Amber Grid are continuing with the works necessary for the adjustment of the Gas Transmission System before the official start of operation of the LNG Terminal, scheduled for December 3rd," said Andrius Dagys, Technical Director of AB Amber Grid.

The Gas Transmission System Operator, AB Amber Grid, is a Lithuanian company of national strategic importance. The company is responsible for transmission of natural gas, for operation and maintenance of Lithuania’s Gas Transmission Pipeline System, for securing safe and reliable operations and development of the Gas Transmission System.

A total of 96.58 per cent of AB Amber Grid shares are owned by EPSO-G, a company controlled by the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Lithuania.
