Croatian FSRU gets LNG cargo from Trinidad and Tobago

Croatia’s FSRU-based Krk LNG import facility, operated by state-owned LNG Croatia, has received a cargo of liquefied natural gas from Trinidad and Tobago’s Point Fortin LNG plant, according to shipping data.

The 2015-built 170,200-cbm, Kool Boreas, owned by CoolCo and chartered by Shell, arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on February 14, according to a statement by LNG Croatia.

Also, this is the 55th shipment for the FSRU since the launch of operations in January 2021.

LNG Croatia did not reveal the source of the new shipment but its AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows that Kool Boreas picked up the cargo at the Point Fortin LNG plant some two weeks ago.

Atlantic LNG is the operator of the liquefaction plant in which Shell and BP are the biggest shareholders.

This is not the first cargo from Trinidad and Tobago for the Croatian FSRU. The unit received its first cargo from Trinidad in October 2021.

The Croatian FSRU mainly receives LNG volumes from the US but it recently welcomed its first cargo from Mozambique as well.

It also received shipments from Egypt, Nigeria, and reloads from European terminals.

European LNG demand spiked in the last 12 months as European countries look to boost energy security and replace Russian pipeline gas.

Due to high demand, Croatia also decided to further increase the capacity of its FSRU-based LNG import terminal.

The capacity of the terminal will rise to 6.1 bcm and the expansion project will cost about 180 million euros ($193 million) and includes the construction of a new pipeline from Zlobin to Bosiljevo.
