As of 18 September, more than six billion cubic metres (bcm) of natural gas has been shipped to Croatia’s gas transmission system via the Krk LNG terminal since its commissioning in January 2021.
During this period, over 9.7 million cubic metres (mcm) of liquefied natural gas has also been re-gasified.
In the current gas year, 30 transport ships have already been transhipped, with the last LNG vessel intended for the terminal in this gas year expected to be transhipped by the end of the week.
In the same period, over 2.5 bcm of natural gas was shipped to the Croatian gas transmission system, representing more than 71 per cent of all quantities of natural gas entering Croatia.
“All of the above confirms the importance of the terminal for the natural gas market in the Republic of Croatia and this part of Europe,” the terminal’s operator LNG Hrvatska said in a press release.
The floating LNG terminal is located in Omišalj municipality on the island of Krk. With a technical capacity of 2.9 bcm per year, the terminal consists of a floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) vessel and an onshore section.
