Nonetheless, we managed to maintain higher petroleum products handling volumes at the KN Oil Terminals, compared to the result for July, 2018, it is also reflected in the revenue for July 2019. Our main goal for the second half year of 2019 is to efficiently employ our infrastructure, actively competing with other neighboring terminals for the transshipment volumes and provided services for the clients.
“Klaipėda LNG terminal continues maintaining high activity volumes and the demand for Klaipėda LNG terminal capacity was further increased by the favourable situation in international markets.”
