Croatian FSRU to get another US cargo as new shipment lands

Croatia is due to receive another cargo of liquefied natural gas from the US, just as the country’s third-ever shipment arrived at the Krk Island facility in the northern Adriatic Sea.

The 173,400-cbm Patris arrived near the LNG Croatia FSRU on March 23 and docked at the unit on Wednesday, its AIS data shows.

The state-owned terminal operator confirmed the arrival later on Wednesday saying the vessel would depart Krk on March 26.

As previously reported by LNG Prime, this BP-chartered vessel previously loaded the cargo at the Freeport LNG terminal in Texas.

In addition, another LNG carrier should deliver Croatia’s fourth shipment in total and the third US cargo next month.

The 173,400-cbm Britsh Contributor, owned by BP, should land at Krk on April 9, according to the Rijeka Port Authority.

This vessel also took a shipment at the Freeport LNG terminal in Texas. BP has a long-term contract for volumes produced at the Freeport facility.

To remind, Croatian power utility HEP, a shareholder in the Krk terminal, purchased the second cargo while capacity holder Hungary’s MFGK took the first shipment.

The regasified LNG coming from the Patris delivery would also end up in Hungary, according to Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto.

He said in a social media post on Tuesday Hungary would receive “90 million cubic meters of US LNG via the Krk terminal.”

Besides MFGK, capacity takers at the Krk terminal include trading firm MET and Qatar’s PowerGlobe.

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