The Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) vessel LNG CROATIA left Viktor Lenac shipyard. The vessel has departed for Spain, from the port of Sagunto, where the cargo necessary for the commissioning of the terminal will be loaded on the FSRU.
In accordance with the planned project activities, the arrival of the FSRU vessel at the location of the terminal is expected early December this year, when all activities related to the commissioning of the terminal will begin, in order for the terminal to start commercial operations on 1 January 2021.
Also, Hungary’s Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó stressed the importance of the LNG terminal in Krk, during a videoconference with European energy commissioner Kadri Simson.
In fact, Hungary is set to receive an annual one billion cubic metres of liquefied natural gas from January, which will further diversify the country’s energy supplies.
“If the operational experiences are positive, then we could potentially consider the expansion of the terminal capacity which can increase the role of LNG in Hungary’s energy supply,” Minister Szijjártó said.
