Croatia has received a new LNG shipment at its floating storage and regasification unit located at the Krk facility in the northern Adriatic Sea.
The 170,000-cbm SCF Mitre arrived at the LNG Croatia FSRU on Friday, according to the state-owned LNG terminal operator.
Following completion of the ship-to-ship transfer, the LNG carrier would leave the Krk facility on Monday afternoon, LNG Croatia said, but it did not provide any additional information.
The 2015-built vessel, owned by Russia’s Sovcomflot and chartered by Shell, has delivered the ninth cargo to the FSRU since the start of commercial operations on January 1.
It previously loaded LNG at Nigeria’s Bonny LNG terminal, its AIS data shows.
This marks the second Nigeria LNG shipment to land at the LNG Croatia FSRU following the Adam LNG delivery in March.
The FSRU has also received three cargoes from the Freeport terminal in the US, and one each from Cove Point, Cameron LNG, and Sabine Pass. One shipment also arrived from Belgium’s Zeebrugge.
In addition, the FSRU supplied a small cargo in May to Avenir LNG’s dual-purpose bunkering and supply vessel Avenir Accolade.
Besides the FSRU, the Krk import facility consists of a jetty and a high-pressure gas pipeline.
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.
