Croatia extends LNG terminal gas bidding deadline
ZAGREB, (Reuters) - A deadline for bids on output from a planned offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal to be built on Croatia’s northern Adriatic island of Krk has been extended until Sept. 28, developers LNG Croatia said.
Demand will dictate the capacity of the 250 million euro terminal, which is part of EU-led efforts to diversify away from Russian energy imports.
The deadline on bidding for output was Aug. 3 but was delayed on requests from potential customers who are still in negotiations, LNG Croatia said.
The European Commission this week said it had earmarked 124 million euros for the project which will supply gas to countries in eastern and central Europe, regions which rely heavily on Russian gas.
Croatia’s parliament in June passed a law which cleared the way for construction of the terminal.
U.S. energy firms are keen to supply gas to the terminal, U.S. government officials have said, but no decision has been taken on supply.

A New Approach to Large Medium Voltage Drives
By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
