Lithuania's Strategic Use of EU Energy Policy Tools: A Transformation of Gas Market Dynamics
Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, NG 111
54 p.

Lithuania is one of Europe’s smallest national gas markets until recently reliant, in common with Latvia and Estonia, on imported Russian pipeline gas for all its natural gas requirements.  After its accession to the EU in 2004, Lithuania became directly impacted by the developing body of energy market regulation, most notably the Third Package of 2009.  The paper provides a detailed and comprehensive account and assessment of this process, incorporating material and insights gained from conversations with many of the key players involved.  Its content will be of great interest to those in the fields of regulation and geopolitics, but for more general observers of the natural gas arena it provides, as a case study, a means of appreciating the practical implications of the EU regulatory frameworks at play.
