Hääl owns a major stake in a company called Balti Gaas, which develops that terminal. Hääl said that he is missing a construction permit which cannot be granted before environmental permits are in order.


The terminal would have a reservoir of 60,000 cubic metres which would cover the three weeks of gas consumption needs in the state. Hääl hopes that when the first stage is completed, it will be possible to get support from the EU to develop the terminal to its full capacity.


Terminal with reservoirs of around 320,000 cubic metres would be able to supply all Baltic states with natural gas and if an undersea pipeline is built, also Finland.
