Croatian FSRU to receive first Qatari LNG cargo

Croatia will receive its first LNG cargo from Qatar this week at the Krk FSRU located in the northern Adriatic Sea.

The Nakilat-owned and Qatargas-chartered Q-Max LNG carrier Al Dafna should dock at the 140,000-cbm LNG Croatia FSRU on Tuesday, according to its AIS data.

The 266,366-cbm LNG carrier previously loaded the cargo at the giant Ras Laffan LNG complex in Qatar, the data shows.

Besides marking the first LNG cargo from Qatar, this would also be the largest carrier to dock at the Krk facility since the start of commercial operations on January 1. Q-Max carriers are the world’s biggest LNG vessels and they are about 345 metres long.

In addition, Al Dafna would bring the tenth shipment in total to the Krk terminal.

Besides the FSRU, the Krk import facility consists of a jetty and a high-pressure gas pipeline.

Croatia’s first LNG terminal has the capacity to send up to 2.6 bcm per year of natural gas into the national grid.

Moreover, Switzerland-based trading firm MET, Hungary’s MFGK, and Qatar’s PowerGlobe have booked almost all of the volumes at the Krk facility for the next three years.
