Croatian FSRU gets US LNG cargo

Croatia’s FSRU-based Krk terminal has received a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo from the US, according to shipping data.

State-owned terminal operator LNG Croatia said in a short statement that the 2020-built 173,400-cbm, BW Magnolia, arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on April 25.

The LNG terminal operator said this is the 61st LNG cargo for the FSRU since it started operations in January 2021.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the ME-GI LNG carrier, owned by BW LNG and chartered by BP, delivered the cargo to the FSRU from the Freeport LNG terminal in Texas.

BP has a long-term contract with Freeport LNG which again started exporting LNG earlier this year following the shutdown in June last year.

Earlier this month, the Croatian FSRU received a cargo from Eni’s Coral Sul FLNG, where BP offtakes all of the volumes.

The Krk terminal mostly receives LNG cargoes from the US. Besides Mozambique, it also received shipments from Egypt, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, and reloads from Dunkirk, Zeebrugge, and Barcelona.

Some of the terminal users include a unit Switzerland-based trading firm MET Group and Hungary’s MFGK.

Finland’s Wartsila recently secured a contract to supply one regasification module for the FSRU LNG Croatia as part of Croatia’s plans to boost the capacity of the Krk LNG terminal.

The contract is worth about 22.9 million euros ($25.2 million) and the the regas module will have a maximum capacity of 250,000 m3/h.

According to LNG Croatia’s website, the current three LNG regasification units have a maximum regasification rate of 451,840 m3/h.

Following the upgrade, the FSRU-based facility will have a capacity of about 6.1 bcm per year.

LNG Croatia expects to offer additional capacities to the market from the gas year starting on October 1, 2025.
