“Eesti Gaas is ready for the winter and our customers can be carefreeand customers can be worry-free. We have established solid LNG supply chains proved by five large deliveries of LNG this year, a full turn from eastern gas to western LNG has been carried out,” said Margus Kaasik, Chairman of the Management Board of Eesti Gaas.

“Today, the agreement regarding the next gas supply for January through Klaipeda has also been concluded. Now that the physical supply security has been achieved in our region and in Europe, we would much like to hope that the gas price curve will continue to fall to help our businesses to recover and increase their competitiveness,” said Kaasik.

The previous four LNG deliveries for Eesti Gaas customers arrived to the port of Klaipeda this year in May, June and October. In the following days, LNG bunkering will take place at the Independence floating terminal, and the gas will then flow to customers via pipelines.

Eesti Gaas started using the small LNG terminal in Klaipeda, Lithuania already in 2017. In 2019 a contract was signed with Klaipeda Nafta, after which LNG was purchased through the Klaipeda Independence floating terminal and sent to the natural gas network. In addition, the company has been supplying LNG with trucks for bunkering ships and to industrial customers outside the gas network for many years.

Eesti Gaas offers customers natural gas in the form of pipeline gas, compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) and manages Estonia’s largest gas network.
