LNG reloading operation
The first small-scale LNG reloading operation in the Mediterranean has taken place at Croatia’s LNG terminal on Krk island, project operator LNG Croatia reported on May 21
A batch of LNG was loaded from the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) at the site to a smaller vessel, the 7,000-m3 Avenir Accolade, LNG Croatia said.
The Krk LNG terminal received its first cargo in January, a month after its FSRU arrived. The facility has a regasification capacity of around 2.6bn m3/year, the bulk of which has been booked by Qatar. It also has a 140,200-m3 storage capacity.
LNG Croatia, a joint venture between Croatia’s state-owned Hrvatska Elektroprivreda and Plinarco, says the terminal can provide gas to consumers both in Croatia and neighboring states, many of which are heavily dependent on Russian supply.
