  • Owner: AB Amber Grid[2]
  • Parent: Gazprom, AS Conexus Baltic Grid[2]
  • Capacity:
  • Length: 2,113 km / 1,312.96 mi[1]

The Lithuanian national gas transmission system is operated by AB Amber Grid and is interconnected with the natural gas transmission systems of Latvia, Belarus, and the Kaliningrad Region of Russia. It is also connected to the Klaipeda LNG Terminal and its associated distribution systems. The transmission system is owned by Gazprom and AS Conexus Baltic Grid. The pipelines that have been in operation for the longest time were constructed back in 1961. The largest pipeline diameter is 1,220 mm. The design pressure of the largest part of the gas transmission system is 54 bar. Gas transportation via the Lithuania Latvia cross-border gas interconnector is bi-directional.[1]

The pipeline system includes the following pipelines (with names used in the Sci_Grid IGG data set):[3]

  • Klaipeda–Panevezys pipeline (INET_PL_11150 and INET_PL_11151)
  • Sakiai–Klaipeda pipeline (INET_PL_11110, INET_PL_11111 and INET_PL_1112)
  • Vilnius–Sakiai pipeline (INET_PL_1107, INET_PL_11071, and INET_PL_11072)
  • Chivasso–Poirino pipeline (INET_PL_118)
  • Nemencine–Visaginas (INET_PL_1123)
