Reuters is reporting that Croatia’s Krk FLNG terminal project will proceed despite doubts over its viability.
The doubts regarding the project’s viability have grown as a low number of binding bids were registered by gas buyers towards the end of 2018. Indeed, while, the terminal has a planned capacity of 2.5 billion m3 per year, so far it has only received bids amounting to 0.52 billion m3 per year.
