From wire reports, KLAIPEDA

Lithuania's Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius visited Klaipeda where he was introduced with the construction processes of the liquid natural gas (LNG) terminal's gas pipeline and quay, reports ELTA. Head of the company Klaipedos Nafta Rokas Masiulis informed the prime minister about the construction work on the quay and ascertained that the process was not falling behind.

"In total, 134 piles will have to be hammered down, altogether. 101 piles have been already hammered in. All the piles in the moorage and maintenance sites should be hammered in together by the end of April. So far, we were observing the contractors' understanding that the works must be completed on time. I hoped that this tempo will be maintained in the future as well," said Butkevicius.

The head of government also had an opportunity to inspect the construction of the gas pipeline on Pig's BackIsland.

"The connecting gas service-pipe and the site are arranged. In March and April, these pipes will have to be welded and lowered in the trench. The foundation of the building of the gas station will be laid. I am happy that the first 600-meter-long part of the gas pipeline is already built," said the prime minister.

The LNG terminal project should be completed by the end of this year.
