Croatian FSRU welcomes 85th LNG cargo

Croatia’s Krk liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal has received its 85th cargo since the launch of operations in January 2021.

The 2018-built 173,400-cbm, BW Tulip, arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on February 20, according to a short statement by state-owned LNG terminal operator LNG Croatia.

BW Tulip’s AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows that the LNG carrier previously picked up the cargo at Venture Global LNG’s Calcasieu plant in Louisiana.

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 shipped more than 7 billion cubic meters of natural gas into the Croatian system, LNG Croatia said in a separate statement on Tuesday.

The LNG terminal regasified more than 11.5 million cubic meters of LNG and completed 308 truck loading operations, it said.

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

Last 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 firm awarded the module contract to China’s CIMC SOE.

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.
