RIGA -- Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite has endorsed the idea of all the Baltic states building their own liquified natural gas terminals, which would abandon the idea of a single unified terminal for the region.

Building a single LNG terminal has been an active proposal for many years and would allow the countries to draw heavily on EU funding for the project. A number of technical and political hurdles, however, have cast the viability of the project into doubt.

Each country's respective minister is scheduled to meet in October to come to a final conclusion on the issue.
