Croatia’s Krk LNG terminal receives 39th cargo

State-owned terminal operator LNG Croatia said it has received the 39th LNG cargo at the FSRU-based Krk import facility since the launch of operations in January last year.

LNG Croatia said in a short statement that the 174,000-cbm LNG Endurance docked at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on August 30.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the 2021-built carrier, owned by a JV consisting of NYK and Geogas LNG and chartered by TotalEnergies, previously picked up the cargo at Venture Global’s Calcasieu LNG plant in Louisiana.

The FSRU mostly gets supplies from the US but this could be the first Calcasieu Pass cargo to land in Croatia, according to shipping data.

Croatia recently decided to further increase the capacity of its FSRU-based LNG import terminal on the northern Adriatic island of Krk.

The capacity of the terminal will rise from current 2.9 bcm to 6.1 cbm, as European countries look to slash reliance on Russian pipeline gas.

Also, the expansion project will cost about 180 million euros ($180 million) and includes the construction of a new pipeline from Zlobin to Bosiljevo.
