Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 10, 2018 – The government on Thursday sent to parliament a draft legislation on a liquefied natural gas terminal which would enable the implementation of the strategic project of the LNG terminal on the northern Adriatic island of Krk within deadlines.

“The project has strategic importance, we talk about it a lot and it has triggered off disputes and resistance in local self government units. However, we believe that with this special law we can resolve the diversification of the gas supply in the most efficient way, taking into account all environmental aspects, and place Croatia on Europe’s energy map,” said Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.

A state secretary in the Environmental Protection and Energy Ministry Mile Horvat said it was in Croatia’s interest to secure a fast realisation of the LNG terminal on Krk to preserve natural gas supply security and position Croatia on the European energy market. “The bill will help this strategic project for Croatia be realised within the set deadlines,” he said.

The government also sent to parliament for a second reading a bill on exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons which defines jurisdiction for certain jobs, including the necessary activities in the realisation of exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons and geothermal waters, natural gas storage and permanent disposal of carbon dioxide, in accordance with international practice and directives.
