LNG Croatia receives first LNG cargo from Mozambique

LNG Croatia has received its first LNG cargo from Mozambique, it said on January 23.

The company said that the vessel British Mentor docked at the floating terminal on January 23 and will leave on January 25.

Croatia became the world's 40th importer of LNG in 2021 and has since announced plans to double Krk's regas capacity to 6.1bn m3/year. LNG Croatia last year said the floating terminal located on the island of Krk will begin sending LNG to gas-powered ships and vehicles across Italy and eastern Europe, under a joint collaboration agreement struck by its operator Prvo Plinarsko Drustvo and Avenir LNG. 

Mozambique shipped its first LNG cargo in November last year. The Coral Sul FLNG has a gas liquefaction capacity of 3.4mn metric tons/year and will put in production 450bn m3 of gas from the Coral reservoir, located in the offshore Rovuma basin. Coral Sul FLNG is the first floating LNG facility ever deployed in the deep waters of the African continent.
