The FSRU LNG Croatia has taken LNG cargo delivery from Egypt, marking the 16th LNG cargo import of the LNG Croatia terminal since the beginning of this year.
The LNG carrier Cool Explorer arrived at the terminal at the island of Krk on November 10. The cargo transfer operation is conducted after thorough safety checks and testing. It took 2 days to perform the cargo transfer, until the afternoon of 12 November 2021.
Platts reports the tanker left Shell’s LNG export facility at Idku on 7 November. It also said that Egyptian LNG deliveries have picked up so far in the fourth quarter after a drop in exports during the summer.
The LNG Croatia terminal began operating commercially at the start of this year. The terminal was commissioned in January 2021 and has an annual capacity of 2.6 BCM, or 1.9 MTPA.
However, its full storage capacity is booked for the next three years, with 84 percent booked until 2027.
LNG Floating and Regasification Unit (FSRU) LNG Croatia has done final testing at Viktor Lenac shipyard from China near Rijeka, before docking at an LNG import facility on Krk Island, Croatia. FSRU LNG Croatia was converted into an FSRU at a Chinese shipyard, after previously being LNG vessel Golar Viking.
