Croatia’s FSRU-based LNG import terminal on the northern Adriatic island of Krk is continuing to receive cargoes from US liquefaction plants.
State-owned operator LNG Croatia said the 2019-built, 165,000-cbm Energy Universe had arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on Monday.
LNG Croatia did not reveal the source of the newest shipment.
This LNG carrier is owned by Japan’s MOL and ships LNG volumes from the Cove Point facility in the US for Tokyo Gas.
According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the LNG tanker loaded the cargo at the Cove Point facility earlier this month.
The vessel delivered the Krk terminal’s 27th shipment since the start of operations in January 2021.
Prior to this shipment, the FSRU received a cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant in the US.
Including the newest shipment, this marks the 19th US LNG cargo for the Croatian facility, according to shipping data compiled by LNG Prime.
The FSRU also received cargoes from Qatar, Nigeria, Egypt, Trinidad, and reloads from Dunkirk and Zeebrugge.
The Croatian government recently said that LNG Croatia had managed to raise the capacity of the terminal from 2.6 billion cubic meters of gas to 2.9 bcm per year without new investment.
Neighbor Slovenia plans to book these new capacities.
