“A couple of things I want to start out with today and that is, first, something involving some American jobs and something we’re pretty excited about here at the State Department, and that is a shipment of LNG – liquefied natural gas – that arrived in Lithuania. The United States wants to congratulate the Government of Lithuania on receiving its first shipment of U.S. liquefied natural gas this week”, Heather Nauert said.

According to Heather Nauert, the State Department welcomes Lithuania’s continued commitment to advance Baltic and European energy security through diversification. This shipment is one of more than a dozen already sent to Europe this year from Cheniere Energy’s terminal in Sabine Pass, Louisiana.

“In addition to supporting European energy security, the shipments will support American jobs here at home. Secretary Tillerson has emphasized that we will continue to work to expand energy choices in Europe so that countries are not dependent on a single or dominant source for their energy”, Heather Nauert said.
