EU approves public support for Croatian LNG terminal at Krk island

The European Commission given the go-ahead to Croatian plans to support the construction and operation of a liquid natural gas (LNG) terminal at Krk island, in line with EU State aid rules. 

The measures will support the construction and operation of a floating LNG terminal, consisting of a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) and the connections to the national gas transmission network. 

The new LNG terminal in Croatia will increase the security of energy supply and enhance competition, for the benefit of citizens in the region. We have approved the support measures to be granted by Croatia because they are limited to what is necessary to make the project happen and in line with our State aid rules."
