Croatian LNG terminal granted environmental permit

Croatian liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal on the island of Krk has reportedly received the environmental permit from the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy. 

According to local media reports, ministry’s commission in charge of reviewing the environmental impact of the FSRU-based terminal granted a conditional acceptance to the project.

With 14 votes for and two votes against, the commission voted in favor of the facility under the condition that environmental protection and monitoring measures are taken.

The commission reviewed the environmental impact study developed by Ekonerg, the company selected by the ministry for the job.

The project is, however, still facing opposition as political and environmental groups protested the ministry’s decision during the voting session.

The Krk LNG import project will be developed in two phases. The first phase includes setting up of a FSRU while the second phase entails the construction of a land-based LNG import facility, according to LNG Croatia, the state-owned company that is developing the project with an initial capacity of 2.6 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas a year.

According to the project development schedule, FSRU to serve the project will be procured by the end of the current year with an expected delivery by the end of 2019.
