While Russian news portal had reported in December that Russian gas trading company LNG Gorskaya LLC was planning on building a bunkering center for liquefied natural gas (LNG) at the Port of Mõntu on Saaremaa, Estonia's largest island, which would be part of a 33 million euro project of the company, it has become clear by now that the planned LNG terminal will not be built there after all.

"Nothing will come," Mihkel Undrest, a member of the board of port owner OÜ Mõntu Sadam, told BNS. "We have been contacted, but we have determined that this project will not be carried out at such a location in such volumes."

Portnews reported in December that the center to be built at Mõntu would consist of a floating LNG storage facility with a capacity of 5,000 cubic meters and a berth for the mooring of vessels bunkered from a 1,300 cubic meter tanker capable of supplying fuel both in harbors and at the offshore facilities of Estonian and Latvian ports.

LNG Gorskaya Overseas OÜ is a partnership structure of Russia's LNG Gorskaya LLC which is building a floating gas conversion facility in St. Petersburg, Russia. The facility will be able to convert 1.968 billion cubic meters of natural gas into 1.26 million tons of LNG annually.

Ansip whitewashes party financing scandal, blames whistleblower instead

Former prime minister and long-time Reform Party chairman Andrus Ansip, now the EU's commissioner for the digital single market, has accused former Reform member and present-day Social Democrat Silver Meikar of having taken money for himself that was supposed to go to the party as a personal donation. Ansip also gave Reform's 2012 financing scandal a fresh coat of white paint.
