The floating LNG terminal project in Omisalj off Krk island is nearing completion. The terminal will soon be ready for liquefied natural gas transport vessels, and the first gas from this new supply route is expected in Croatia’s system in early December.
The terminal’s annual storage capacity is 2.6 billion cubic metres. The entire capacity has been leased for the next three years by foreign and domestic companies, 80 percent capacity has been leased until 2027, and about 50 percent until 2035.
The main part of the terminal is the ‘LNG Croatia’ Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU), which sailed out of Sagunto, Spain on Saturday with the first quantities of LNG for a work trial. The vessel is expected early next month.
According to the director of the LNG Croatia company, Hrvoje Krhen, the terminal will begin its commercial operation in early January when the first LNG vessel docks.
The terminal is connected to Croatia’s gas transport system by the new Omisalj-Zlobin pipeline.
