Croatia’s Krk FSRU terminal gets 54th shipment

Croatia’s FSRU-based Krk LNG import facility, operated by state-owned LNG Croatia, has received its 54th LNG cargo since January 2021.

The 2020-built 173,400-cbm, BW Magnolia, arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on February 6 and departed from the unit the next day, according to a statement by LNG Croatia.

BW Magnolia’s AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows that the ME-GI LNG carrier, owned by BW LNG and chartered by BP, delivered the cargo to the FSRU from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG plant in Louisiana.

The Croatian FSRU mainly receives LNG volumes from the US but it recently welcomed its first cargo from Mozambique as well.

It also received shipments from Egypt, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, and reloads from Dunkirk, Zeebrugge, and Barcelona.

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 ($193 million) and includes the construction of a new pipeline from Zlobin to Bosiljevo.
