Close Up 2016 Lithuania relies on liquid gas

In Lithuania, gas makes up about 30 percent of the total mix of energy sources. The country now relies heavily on liquid gas in particular. Unlike natural gas, liquid gas can be transported not only through pipelines, but also on ships and lorries. That increases its mobility. One reason for the nation’s focus on liquid gas was to reduce its dependence on Russian natural gas imports via the network of pipelines operated by Gazprom. Now, Lithuania aims to advance to become a liquid gas exporter.
