The gas pumping terminal from Qatar will be launched in Klaipeda in early December. This will allow Lithuania not only to refuse buying Russian gas, but also to export about 1 billion cubic meters per year.

Lietuvos Rytas newspaper states this, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.

"The terminal, which will be pumping liquefied gas, delivered to Lithuania from Qatar on tankers, will begin its work yet in the beginning of December. A "floating terminal" is currently heading to the port of Klaipeda," the article states.

According to the Lietuvos Rytas, the amount is about 4 billion cubic meters per year, which will come to Klaipeda from Qatar. Experts claim that Lithuania consumes 3 billion cubic meters of gas per year for domestic needs.

Thus, Vilnius plans to export remaining 1 billion.

Gazprom have already delivered 1,937 billion cubic meters of gas to the Baltic States in the first half of 2014, which is almost 25% less than it had delivered during the same period of the previous year.
