Lithuania is building a new natural gas terminal at Muuga Harbor, underscoring the country's efforts to gain energy independence from Russia.
The green movement has very little in common with US President Donald Trump. But both are moving against the beleaguered Nord Stream 2 pipeline that is now being built to send Russian gas to Europe.
Poland is seeking to reduce its dependence on Russia and the Nord Stream 2 pipeline for its LNG supplies. The deal should provide for 15 percent of Poland's daily gas needs over the next 20 years.
The German decision to back the construction of a liquefied natural gas terminal comes after the US pressured Europe to buy more of its gas. There is no guarantee a German LNG terminal would exclusively import US gas.
Hungary says it wants to diversify the sources of its gas, with Polish and Croatian terminals potentially supplying US and Qatari gas. But its main focus remains Russia, as the Turkstream pipeline makes clear.
