Background

Riga LNG Terminal is a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Latvia. In 2011, a study found that Riga's port would be the best place in the country to build an LNG terminal.[1][2]

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.[3][4]

There have been no development updates since 2011 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
