Qatar is interested in Lithuania's planned liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal project and in working together, chief executive officer of Klaipėdos Nafta (Klaipėda Oil) said on Monday.

Rokas Masiulis has recently visited the Persian Gulf state as part of a delegation headed by President Dalia Grybauskaitė.

"We met with Qatargas. We were surprised to see that the company was well aware of our project and had been well informed about its implementation. They also liked the logic of how we are structuring the project. They expressed their interest in working with us (and) supplying gas," he told BNS.

Masiulis said that he could not give any more details about the meeting due to a confidentiality agreement.

"We will continue our work both with Qatar and other potential suppliers. At some stage, we will organize a gas supply tender," the CEO said.

Energy Minister Arvydas Sekmokas told BNS earlier this month that potential gas supplies for Lithuania's LNG terminal included the United States, Norway and Arab countries.   

Klaipedos Nafta has signed letters of intent on LNG supplies with Spain's Gas Natural Fenosa and US Cheniere.

Russia's gas giant Gazprom has also declared its intentions to supply gas. According to media reports, Klaipėdos Nafta is also discussing the supply of gas with British Petroleum, Shell and others.

Klaipėdos Nafta plans to launch a tender for the supply of gas to the LNG terminal this year, expecting to sign a gas supply contract in the second half of 2012. The terminal is planned to be launched in late 2014, with about a billion cubic meters of gas expected to be pumped via the facility in the first year of operation. It is planned that the LNG terminal will have an annual capacity of 2 billion to 3 billion cubic meters.
