With President Vladimir Putin in attendance, Russian gas monopoly Gazprom commissioned an offshore gas receiving terminal and a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) called Marshal Vasilevsky on January 8 in the Kaliningrad Region.

Earlier, Gazprom set up the Kaliningradskoye underground gas storage (UGS) facility and increased the throughput capacity of the Minsk – Vilnius – Kaunas – Kaliningrad gas pipeline, the only route for gas deliveries to Russia’s westernmost constituent entity until now.
