Croatia’s first and only FSRU-based LNG import terminal on the northern Adriatic island of Krk continues to receive shipments from US liquefaction terminals.

State-owned operator LNG Croatia said the 2004-built, 138,000-cbm Cadiz Knutsen arrived at the 140,000-cbm FSRU on Thursday.

Knutsen’s LNG carrier brought the terminal’s fifth cargo for this year and the 24th shipment since the start of operations in January 2021.

Also, the FSRU-based LNG import terminal has received more than 3.4 million cubic meters of LNG since its launch.

LNG Croatia did not reveal the source of the newest shipment.

Cadiz Knutsen previously loaded the cargo at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export terminal in the US, its AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows.

Prior to this shipment, the FSRU also received a cargo from the Sabine Pass plant. In total, this is the 16th US LNG cargo for the facility.

Croatia’s LNG terminal has the capacity to send up to 2.6 bcm per year of natural gas into the national grid.

MET, Hungary’s MFGK, and Qatar’s PowerGlobe have booked almost all of the volumes at the Krk facility for the next two years.
