Croatian FSRU gets first 2022 LNG shipment

The first liquefied natural gas cargo of 2022 has landed at Croatia’s FSRU-based LNG import terminal on the island of Krk.

State-owned terminal operator LNG Croatia said the 173,400-cbm Kinisis had arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on Friday.

It did not provide any additional information.

This LNG carrier also delivered a cargo to Krk in May last year.

The 2018-built vessel, owned by Chandris and K Line, mainly transports volumes from the Freeport LNG terminal in the US as part of a long-term charter with BP.

Its AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows that it loaded LNG at Freeport at the end of December, prior to delivering the fuel to Krk.

Including this cargo, the Croatian FSRU received 12 US LNG shipments and 20 in total since the start of operations on January 1, 2021.

The unit received two cargoes from Qatar and Nigeria, each, and one each from Trinidad and Tobago and Egypt. The FSRU took one cargo each from the Zeebrugge and Dunkirk facilities as well.

Croatia’s first LNG terminal has the capacity to send up to 2.6 bcm per year of natural gas into the national grid.

MET, Hungary’s MFGK, and Qatar’s PowerGlobe have booked almost all of the volumes at the Krk facility for the next two years.
