Krk, Croatia (PortSEurope) October 20, 2017 – A total of 27 bids have been submitted for the purchase of an LNG floating terminal (FSRU) to be located on the Croatian island of Krk. 13 for the FSRU itself and 14 for the docking station and associated facilities.
The FSRU project consists of the design and construction of jetty, connecting gas pipeline and high-pressure installations including pigging station, water and drainage, auxiliary facilities and buildings.
The LNG receiving terminal will be located in Omišalj county on the island of Krk in Croatia. Krk LNG terminal is an important factor in the diversification of natural gas supply as well as the enhancement of security of natural gas supply for Central and South-Eastern Europe.
On February 17, 2017, the European Union announced that the Connecting Europe Fund (CEF) would support the project to the tune of €102 million ($122.06 million), subject to various conditions being met.
The LNG terminal on Krk is targeted for completion by end-2019, with the first gas deliveries to start a year later.
Krk is a large Croatian island in the northern Adriatic Sea, connected to the mainland by a bridge. It is less than 50 km south of the port of Rijeka, and is the location of Rijeka airport.
