Croatian FSRU receives first LNG cargo from Mozambique

State-owned terminal operator LNG Croatia has received the first LNG cargo from Mozambique since the launch of operations of the Krk FSRU-based facility in January 2021.

LNG Croatia said in a short statement that the 2019-built 173,400-cbm, British Mentor, had arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on January 23.

The LNG terminal operator said that this is the 53rd LNG cargo in total and the first LNG cargo to arrive from Mozambique to the FSRU-based terminal.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the vessel owned by Kmarin and chartered by BP, loaded the cargo at Eni’s 3.4 mtpa Coral Sul FLNG located offshore Mozambique at the end of December.

Eni shipped the first cargo from this FLNG in November, adding Mozambique to the LNG producing countries. BP takes all of the volumes produced at the FLNG as part of a long-term deal.

Prior to arriving at the Krk FSRU-based facility, British Mentor was anchored offshore Piraeus in Greece, the data shows.

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 ($196 million) and includes the construction of a new pipeline from Zlobin to Bosiljevo.

The Croatian FSRU mainly receives LNG volumes from the US. It also received shipments from Egypt, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, and reloads from Dunkirk, Zeebrugge, and Barcelona.
