A New Promising Specialty: Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal Engineering

In response to market changes and emerging new technologies, KN and Klaipėda University introduced a new study programme ‘LNG Terminal Engineering’, which is considered as having prospects for the future. We are in a new and challenging phase of innovation development in the maritime sector, which provides great opportunities for the maritime states. Lithuania will utilise the emerging opportunities in full if it manages to train specialists in time, conducts research in the areas relevant to the maritime industry and transport, and promotes energy efficiency.

During 3,5 years, in the study programme of Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal Engineering you will learn to design, construct, operate, and maintain the equipment, tools, and systems in the LNG engineering units and to work safely, efficiently, economically, and by preserving natural resources.

Why LNG

  • since the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region provides for the development of an efficiently operating EU internal energy market, for making the Baltic Sea a clean shipping region, and for the installation of the LNG flow distribution stations;
  • since the 2020–2030 climate and energy policy strategy provides for the expansion of the international gas pipeline network;
  • since Lithuania’s Progress Strategy Lithuania 2030 provides for the implementation of advanced LNG technologies that preserve resources and mitigate the environmental pollution and climate change in the industry, energy, and transport sectors;
  • since the Lithuanian National Energy Independence Strategy emphasises the main goal of the country: to move to a different geopolitical and value area, based on market relations and competition;
  • and also since that is a promising and innovative specialty offering a wide range of career opportunities.
