Russia probably wants to extend its gas supply contract with Lithuania until 2020 in exchange for a lower price of gas for Vilnius. Some experts dismiss it as an impracticable proposal, while others do not seem to be surprised, the Lietuvos Rytas daily reports.

Vidmantas Jankauskas, deputy CEO of the Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists (LPK), told the daily that such a requirement from Gazprom was not surprising.

“Long-term deals are proposed for gas supply as well as electricity supply. The interests of Gazprom are absolutely clear. We can decide anything, yet we shouldn’t forget that the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal will need a long-term deal as well,” he said.

“If Gazprom proposes to sign a long-term gas supply contract specifying certain volumes, such a requirement cannot be met for sure. We will have the liquefied natural gas terminal, therefore we cannot make an obligation to continue buying gas from Russia for a long period of time,” Gytis Kaminskas, a lawyer with the law firm Baltic Legal Solutions Lietuva, told the daily.

The current gas supply contract between Lietuvos Dujos (Lithuanian Gas), Lithuania’s gas supply company, and Gazprom expires in 2015.
