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. RWE pulled out of the project in October 2009.
The final investment decision (FID) on the project was pushed back until 2013, 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.
