Croatian FSRU welcomes 90th LNG cargo

Croatia’s Krk liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal has received its 90th cargo since the launch of operations in January 2021.

The 2021-built 174,000-cbm, MOL Hestia, arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on April 22, according to a short statement by state-owned LNG terminal operator LNG Croatia.

MOL Hestia’s AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows that the LNG carrier previously picked up the cargo at Cheniere’s giant Sabine Pass 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 7.42 billion cubic meters of natural gas into the Croatian system, according to LNG Croatia.

The LNG terminal regasified more than 12.2 million cubic meters of LNG and completed 336 truck loading operations.

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

Last year, a unit of Finland’s Wartsila won a contract to supply one regasification module for the FSRU.

Under the contract, Wartsila Gas Solutions is building 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.
