LNG Croatia begins operations to increase capacity of Krk LNG terminal

At the end of September, LNG Croatia, as the operator of the liquified natural gas (LNG) terminal on the island of Krk, started all the necessary actions to increase the maximum capacity of the Terminal.

The expansion was first announced in June 2022 by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, who mentioned an increase from 2.9 to 6.1 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas per year.

Now, LNG Croatia announced that in these weeks, the project engineering of the new regasification module will be completed and its production will begin.

“For the needs of the regasification module operation and due to the specifics of its installation technology as well as the specifics of the operation, a contract was signed for the procurement of a seawater pump with the company Framo, which is one of the leading manufacturers of seawater pumps for LNG and offshore industry,” the company said. “The pump will supply the heat exchanger for the needs of heat exchange between seawater – glycol as an intermediate fluid and LNG.”
