Energy Transition

How did one European country free itself from Russian gas?

Lithuanian Navy personnel raise the national flag as floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) "Independence" is escorted (rear) to the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Klaipeda port October 27, 2014. Lithuania will be able to survive without Russian gas after its LNG terminal opened today, redrawing the energy map for the Baltic states. The floating LNG import terminal at the port of Klaipeda means the end of the supply monopoly of Russia's Gazprom and isolation from global gas markets.
