For this point (in addition to the tariffs above) the tariffs for restricted capacity products are also applied (for more detailed information on restricted capacity products and their tariffs see below).
2 For the interconnection point between the Lithuanian Natural Gas Transmission System and the Latvian Natural Gas Transmission System (Gas Metering Point: Kiemėnai GMS).
3 For the interconnection point between the Lithuanian Natural Gas Transmission System and the Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal‘s System (Gas Metering Point: Klaipėda GMS).
4 For the connection points between the Lithuanian Natural Gas Transmission System and the Lithuanian natural gas distribution systems, Lithuanian consumers’ systems directly connected to the Lithuanian Natural Gas Transmission System, corresponding one exit point (Domestic Exit Point) for all Lithuanian Natural Gas Transmission System users.
5 For the connection points between the Lithuanian Natural Gas Transmission System and the Lithuanian natural gas distribution systems, Lithuanian consumers’ systems directly connected to the Lithuanian Natural Gas Transmission System, corresponding one exit point (Domestic Exit Point) for Achema.

In order to collect funds to cover all installation and fixed operating (which are not included in other state-regulated prices) costs of the Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal (hereinafter referred to as the "LNGT") (including the infrastructure and interconnector thereof) and to cover reasonable costs of the minimum gas quantity required to ensure necessary technological operations of the LNGT, the Law of the Republic of Lithuania on the Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal (Art. 5(2)) provides for the application of the so called "Supply Security Charge", which is related to the security of supply of natural gas and is added to the natural gas transmission tariff. The size of the Supply Security Charge is set on an annual basis by the Council. During the year, but not more often than twice a year, Supply Security Charge may be adjusted by the Council‘s decision.
 
Information on the Supply Security Charge for 2023 will be published at a later date, after approval by the Council (due this year).
