A floating liquified natural gas (LNG) terminal arrived at the Lithuanian city Klaipeda on 27 October 2014 where it was greeted by locals as the guarantor of the Baltic region's energy supply.

The vessel, called The Independence, is expected to reduce the Baltic states' dependence on Russian gas.

In a recent 'stress test' on the resilience of the European gas system, the European Commission concluded that with the LNG terminal in Klaipeda, the impact of a cut in the supply of Russian gas should be limited.
