Lithuania may offer a 20 percent stake in the country’s planned liquefied-natural-gas terminal on the Baltic sea to foreign investors, the Baltic News Service reported today, citing Energy Minister Arvydas Sekmokas.
The shares may be offered to companies providing equipment, technology or gas supply, the newswire said. Norway’s Hoegh LNG (HLNG), the LNG vessel provider to the terminal, and Cheniere Energy Inc. (LNG) of the U.S. may be among the potential investors, Sekmokas was quoted as saying.
Lithuania plans to begin operations at the floating LNG terminal at the end of 2014.
