The expanded liquefied natural gas terminal on the Croatian Adriatic island of Krk, whose capacity will increase to 6.1 billion cubic meters (bcm) per year, is likely to come online in the spring of 2025, Ivan Fugas, operations and technical affairs director of LNG Croatia, told news portal seenews.com this week.

The project cost will slightly exceed the initially planned EUR 25 million due to price inflation but potentially will not go over EUR 30 mln, Fugas told SeeNews.

The Croatian government has so far committed to funding the expansion but hopes that an EU grant could also be secured. As much as 80% of the procurement and technical documentation of the expansion project is ready, with manufacturing slated to begin by July.

The works are expected to be completed by January or February 2025; however, commissioning will need to wait until the end of the heating season of that year.

Public tenders for allocating the capacity should start in 2024, with the process still being worked out and dependent on the construction of a pipeline for regasified LNG, the official added.

The LNG terminal, with a current capacity of 2.9 bcm, started operating in January 2021. It delivers gas to the Croatian national transmission network, which is connected to fellow EU member states Slovenia, Italy, and Hungary, as well as to non-EU members Serbia and Montenegro.
