    Lithuania may tighten security at LNG terminal - minister

    September 28, 2022 - BBC International Reports (Europe)


      Text of report in English by Lithuanian news website ELTA on 28 September

      Vilnius, September 28 (ELTA) - After leaks occurred in the Nord Stream gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea, which might have been caused by explosions, Lithuania's authorities assure that security of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Klaipeda and other energy facilities is guaranteed but could be heightened.

      "I will not go into details as regards the security of critical infrastructure. I will just say that these facilities are always protected, security exercises are always conducted and the Armed Forces are invoked (&) to escort vessels [gas carriers] to the LNG terminal," Minister of National Defence Arvydas Anusauskas told reporters Wednesday [28 September].

      Minister of the Interior Agne Bilotaite stated that technical security details could not be revealed, adding that all of the necessary measures have been undertaken to safeguard the country's energy infrastructure.

      Meanwhile, Minister of Energy Dainius Kreivys hinted that security could be heightened.

      "When the war [in Ukraine] started, we introduced measures to tighten the security, both of our power interconnections with Sweden and Poland, as well as the LNG terminal. Now a question is whether its security should be tightened even more. In my opinion, this is needed," said Kreivys.

      In the Baltic Sea, three leaks have occurred in the Nord Stream 1 and the Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines connecting Russia and Germany. It is suspected that the leaks were preceded by blasts.

      Norway, which is now the major gas supplier to Europe, announced after the incident that it would step up security of its energy infrastructure.
