In order to ensure a stable supply of natural gas, two new gas pipelines worth 400 million euros are being built in Croatia, MTI reported.
The construction cost of the Buceljevo-Sisak-Kozarac gas pipeline is 322 million euros and is 122 km long, while the construction cost of the Luko-Zabok gas pipeline is 78 million euros and is 36 km long. In both cases, the contractor is the Croatian company Plinakro.
The Bosiljevo-Sisak-Kozarac gas pipeline, together with the already existing Zlobin-Omisalj line and the 75-bar Kozarac-Slobodnica line, as well as the Zlobin-Bosiljevo gas pipeline under construction, forms the main pipeline connecting the Krk LNG terminal ( liquefied natural). gas station) Central and Eastern European countries, as well as Ukraine.
The above-mentioned gas pipeline is a continuation of the existing connection between Hungary and Croatia (Varosfold – Dravaszerdahely – Donje Miholjak – Slobodnica).
Thus, the capacity of the line from Zlobin via Poseljevo, Šižek and Kozarac to Hungary will increase to 400 thousand cubic meters per hour, that is, 400 thousand cubic meters per hour. annually To 3.5 billion cubic metres.
The Lucko-Zabok gas pipeline to Slovenia will increase its capacity to 1.5 billion cubic meters per year. This is roughly equivalent to peak consumption in Slovenia. If interest increases, the gas pipeline capacity could be increased in a second phase.
Economy Minister Damir Habjan noted at the Cabinet meeting that Zagreb decided in 2022 to increase the capacity of the LNG terminal in Krk from 2.9 billion cubic meters to 6.1 billion cubic meters within a year and a half, while the new associated gas pipeline is being constructed. Network plans within three years.
