Slovenia hopes to start natural gas imports through the Krk liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Croatia in October, Slovenian Infrastructure Minister Jernej Vrtovec said.
As much as one-third of Slovenia's gas demand could be covered through imports from the Krk LNG terminal, Vrtovec said, reported public broadcaster RTV.
Through the compressor station in Rogatec, 700,000 cubic metres of gas a day can be delivered to Slovenia (from the Krk LNG terminal), Vrtovec said during a meeting with Croatian Economy Minister Tomislav Ćorić in Krk.
Croatia has increased the capacity of the Krk terminal to 2.9 billion cubic metres (bcm) per year from 2.6 bcm and could supply up to 300 million cubic metres (mcm) a year to Slovenian natural gas supplier Geoplin, Ćorić said.
