State-owned terminal operator LNG Croatia has received the 44th 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 2015-built 162,000-cbm, BW Pavilion Leeara, had arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on October 12.
The vessel owned by a joint venture consisting of BW LNG and Pavilion Energy previously loaded the cargo at Cheniere’s Corpus Christi plant in the US, according to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue.
Prior to arriving at the FSRU, BW Pavilion Leeara visited the Grain LNG terminal in the UK. It probably unloaded a partial cargo at the facility located east of London.
This marks the third visit this year for this LNG carrier to the Croatian FSRU.
It previously delivered cargoes from the US on August 17 and on May 1.
Slovakia’s gas supplier SPP, that recently signed a deal with ExxonMobil, bought the cargo delivered in May. SPP imported at least six LNG cargoes via the Croatian FSRU up to date.
Due to high demand, Croatia recently 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 ($174.5 million) and includes the construction of a new pipeline from Zlobin to Bosiljevo.
