Croatia says increase in Krk LNG's capacity possible
Croatia could increase the capacity of its LNG regasification terminal on the island of Krk, the country's prime minister Andrej Plenkovic said in a speech in Brussels on March 25.
The capacity could be increased from 2.6 and 2.9bn m3 annualy, Plenkovic said, noting that this growth would be possible with existing infrastructure.
"We believe that we can achieve this increase with the current infrastructure of our LNG ships and all the existing plants there," Plenkovic said at the end of a two-day EU summit where the bloc's reliance on Russian energy in the wake of Moscow's invasion of Ukraine was discussed.
Krk LNG can help Croatia and the wider region diversify its gas supply, Plenkovic said. The terminal took its first cargo in January 2021, and much of its capacity is booked by Qatari interests.
