Finland and Estonia reached an agreement on 17 November to build two liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals, connected by a pipeline across the Gulf of Finland by 2019.

A large regional terminal would be built in Finland while Estonia would get a smaller gas distribution terminal, the Finnish government said in a statement.

The plan, which aims to cut the countries' dependence on Russian gas, was put on hold a month ago due to failure to agree on how the countries' gas companies can share EU financial assistance.
