VILNIUS – A large LNG shipment from the United States, the third this month, arrived in the Lithuanian seaport of Klaipeda on Sunday.

Klaipedos Nafta, the Klaipeda LNG terminal's operator, told BNS last week the Singaporean-flagged BW Pavilion Aranthera tanker would deliver 138,000 cubic meters of LNG.

The tanker came from the LNG production facility in Corpus Christi, Texas where Cheniere Energy's subsidiary Corpus Christi Liquefaction has an export terminal, according to vessel tracking websites Marinetraffic, Vesselfinder and Myshiptracking.

After Lithuania gave up Russian gas imports completely early in April, the Energy Ministry stated that the country’s gas needs would be fully met by the Klaipeda LNG terminal, which would receive three large LNG cargoes each month.
