Croatian FSRU receives 78th LNG cargo

Croatia’s FSRU-based Krk terminal has received its 78th liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo since the launch of operations in January 2021.

The 2020-built 180,000-cbm, GasLog Westminster, arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on November 23, according to a short statement by state-owned LNG terminal operator LNG Croatia.

GasLog Westminster’s AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows that the LNG carrier delivered the cargo to the FSRU from Venture Global LNG’s Calcasieu Pass plant in Louisiana.

This X-DF LNG carrier, owned by Greece’s GasLog, serves a charter deal with UK’s Centrica.

The Croatian FSRU mainly receives shipments from the US, but it also received cargoes from Qatar, Nigeria, Egypt, Trinidad, Indonesia, and reloads from European terminals.

Hungary’s MFGK and a unit of Switzerland-based trading firm MET are some of the users of the facility.

From the start of commercial operations, the LNG terminal has regasified more than 10.5 million cubic meters of LNG and shipped more than 6.34 billion cubic meters of natural gas into the Croatian system, according to LNG Croatia’s website.

Due to high demand, LNG Croatia is currently working to boost the capacity of its FSRU-based Krk LNG terminal.

Earlier this year, Finland’s Wartsila won a contract to supply one regasification module for the FSRU.

Under the contract, Wartsila Gas Solutions, a unit of Wartsila, will build the regas module with a maximum capacity of 250,000 m3/h.

The current three LNG regasification units have a maximum regasification rate of 451,840 m3/h.

Following the upgrade, the Krk LNG facility will have a capacity of about 6.1 bcm per year in 2025.
