Background

Adria LNG Terminal is a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal in Primorje, Croatia. The project was first proposed in 1995. A feasibility study was conducted in 2008, and the location permit was issued in 2010. The project was proposed by a consortium including German firm E.ON, Austria's OMV, France's Total, Germany's RWE, and Slovenia's Geoplin. The plant was originally slated to cost $1 billion. As of 2009, it was slated to go online in 2014.[1][2] RWE pulled out of the project in October 2009.[3]

The final investment decision (FID) on the project was pushed back until 2013,[4] then indefinitely. The project has been shelved in favor of the Hrvatska LNG Terminal, and may be revived depending on Europe’s future gas demand.[5]
