The Croatian LNG import terminal on the island of Krk has started offering LNG reloading services from the LNG Croatia FSRU vessel to LNG transport trucks.
The Croatian LNG terminal operator has launched this new non-standard service for terminal users. Since April 11, terminal users have been able to organize ship-to-truck reloading operations.
On a monthly basis, terminal users will be able to reserve approximately 40 slots for the arrival of LNG trucks.
LNG Croatia claims to be the first to perform a complex LNG reloading operation directly from FSRU vessel to trucks. For this reason, it considers itself unique in the world of the LNG industry.
The Croatian LNG terminal in Krk started commercial operation on January 1, 2021, after the commissioning of the vessel FSRU LNG Croatia. It has the capacity to send up to 2.6 billion cubic meters per year of natural gas into the national grid.
Its full storage capacity is reserved for the next three years, with 84% reserved until 2027.
Earlier this month, Slovenian ministers of economy and infrastructure visited the terminal due to the current energy situation. They expressed their interest in reserving the capacity of the LNG terminal in order to ensure alternative gas supply routes to Slovenia.
