Riga LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Latvia. There have been no development updates since 2011 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
The map below shows Riga, the approximate location of the terminal, in Latvia.

In October 2015, Latvia and Lithuania agreed to work together to create a unified gas market. With Lithuania's Klaipeda LNG Terminal having been completed in 2014, it appears that Latvia will import gas via Lithuania, rather than build its own LNG terminal.
There have been no development updates since 2011 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
