LONDON: The European Commission has earmarked 278 million euros ($325 million) for four liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminals due onstream between 2018 and 2020, a Commission spokesperson said on Tuesday.

Poland's LNG import terminal that came onstream in 2016 had already received 332 million euros, the spokesperson said. Last week, US President Donald Trump and EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker vowed to increase trade in LNG.
