Croatian FSRU gets LNG cargo from Egypt

Croatia’s FSRU-based LNG import terminal on the northern Adriatic island of Krk has received a cargo from the Shell-operated Idku terminal in Egypt, according to shipping data.

The 2020-built 174,000-cbm Flex Aurora, owned by Flex LNG, docked at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on Wednesday, state-owned operator LNG Croatia said in a short statement.

LNG Croatia did not provide any additional information.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, Flex Aurora brought the LNG cargo from the 7.2 mtpa Idku facility in Egypt. Besides Shell, other partners in the Idku facility include TotalEnergies, Petronas, EGAS, and EGPC.

Flex LNG said last month that US LNG player Cheniere had decided to take Flex Aurora on a charter but this will start in the third quarter of this year.

The company’s CEO Oystein Kalleklev recently revealed during the company’s first-quarter earnings call that Flex LNG had fixed the vessel on a short-term flexible time charter of five to seven months with a “supermajor” to fill the gap prior to the start of the Cheniere charter.

The cargo Flex Aurora delivered is not the first shipment from Egypt to land at the Croatian FSRU.

In November last year, the FSRU received its first shipment from the Idku plant.

With this newest cargo, the Krk terminal welcomed its 29th shipment since the start of operations in January 2021.

Most of these cargoes came from the US. Besides the US and Egypt, the FSRU received shipments from Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, and reloads from Dunkirk and Zeebrugge.

Earlier this year, the terminal boosted its capacity from 2.6 billion cubic meters of gas to 2.9 bcm per year without new investment.

There are plans to further increase capacity but this would require additional pipeline work.
