Pipeline Klaipėda–Jurbarkas

Jurbarkas-Klaipėda Gas Transmission Pipeline

Goals of the project:

  • secure stable operating modes in the Lithuania’s Gas Transmission System;
  • secure safety and reliability of natural gas supplies (through the looping of the existing gas transmission pipeline system);
  • enhance the capacity of the gas transmission pipeline system of the western region of Lithuania and create opportunities for the connection of new customers to the gas grid;
  • create preconditions for the transportation of gas from the prospective Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal Facility planned to be constructed in Klaipeda.

The Project is implemented by AB Amber Grid.

Milestones of the project

  • Feasibility Study (prepared in 2005). 
  • Preparation of the Engineering Design of the Gas Transmission Pipeline (2006–2012). 
  • Construction of the Gas Transmission Pipeline section from Jurbarkas to the branch to the Taurage M&R Station (2012). 
  • Construction of the Gas Transmission Pipeline from the branch to the Taurage M&R Station to the branch to the Klaipeda M&R Station No. 2 and construction of the Klaipeda M&R Station No. 2 (2012–2013).

Technical parameters of the Gas Transmission Pipeline

  • Length: ~138 km, diameter: Ø400 mm.
  • Maximum operating pressure: 5.4 MPa.
  • Investments: total project investments amount to LTL 168.524 million (EUR 48.81 million), of which: 
    • share of AB Amber Grid stands at LTL 91.463 million (EUR 26.49 million); 
    • the EU funding - at LTL 77.061 million (EUR 22.32 million).

The Project investments covered the construction of the Gas Transmission Pipeline from Jurbarkas to the branch to the Klaipeda M&R Station No. 2 and the construction of the Klaipeda M&R Station No. 2 as well as the link to the Panevezys–Klaipeda Gas Transmission Pipeline.

Route of the Gas Transmission Pipeline: the route of the Gas Transmission Pipeline is from the town of Jurbarkas to the city of Klaipeda.
