Croatia’s Krk LNG terminal welcomes 40th cargo

State-owned terminal operator LNG Croatia has received the 40th LNG cargo at its FSRU-based Krk import facility since the launch of operations in January last year.

LNG Croatia said in a short statement that the 155,000-cbm GasLog Sydney docked at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on September 5.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the 2013-built carrier, owned by GasLog Partners and chartered by Naturgy, previously picked up the cargo at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant in Louisiana.

Prior to arriving at the Krk facility, the LNG carrier also visited DESFA’s Revithoussa terminal in Greeece. The vessel probably unloaded a partial cargo there.

Croatia recently decided to further increase the capacity of its FSRU-based LNG import terminal on the northern Adriatic island of Krk.

The capacity of the terminal will rise from current 2.9 bcm to 6.1 bcm, as European countries look to slash reliance on Russian pipeline gas.

Also, the expansion project will cost about 180 million euros ($180 million) and includes the construction of a new pipeline from Zlobin to Bosiljevo.
