The Liquefied Natural Gas terminal in Omišalj on the island of Krk is on the market as of today, which means that the first gas deliveries are starting. The first tanker to arrive was sailing under the Lebanese flag carrying gas from the United States.
The operation of the terminal is a contribution to the energy independence of Croatia and the European Union as a whole, and the European Commission has allocated 100 million euros of non-returnable funds to Croatia for its implementation.
“Today we received the first LNG carrier, meaning the first shipment arrived at the terminal, currently we are in the phase of unloading and continued regasification, so that we have begun with operative work. According to sold capacities, we have three years of sold out capacities, the coming period is sold out enough that we can do business on a commercial basis, so yes, there will be work to do,” said LNG Croatia Director Hrvoje Krhen.
