Croatian FSRU welcomes second Q-Max LNG carrier

Croatia has received a new LNG shipment at its floating storage and regasification unit located at the Krk facility in the northern Adriatic Sea.

According to the state-owned terminal operator LNG Croatia, the 266,360-cbm Q-Max LNG carrier Al Mafyar docked at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on Saturday.

The Nakilat-owned and Qatargas-chartered Q-Max LNG carrier arrived during the night and previously loaded the cargo at the giant Ras Laffan LNG complex in Qatar, its AIS data shows.

Moreover, this shipment marks the 12th LNG cargo since the start of operations at the Krk facility on January 1 but also the second Q-Max vessel to dock at the LNG Croatia FSRU following the arrival of Al Dafna in July.

Q-Max carriers are the world’s biggest LNG vessels and they are about 345 meters long.

The LNG Croatia FSRU has received in total seven shipments from the US and two cargoes from Qatar since January 1. It also received two cargoes from Nigeria and one from Belgium’s Zeebrugge.

Also, the FSRU supplied a small cargo in May to Avenir LNG’s dual-purpose bunkering and supply vessel Avenir Accolade.

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

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.
