This Action was part of preparatory activities for the implementation of the Project of Common Interest (PCI) 6.5.1 LNG regasification vessel in Krk, which envisaged the construction of a first onshore LNG (liquefied natural gas) terminal on Krk island in Croatia. The final terminal was expected to have two 180,000 m3 LNG storage tanks and an approximate maximum send-out capacity of 6 bcm/year.

The Action consisted of a set of studies covering both onshore and offshore areas of the terminal. Both onshore and offshore studies focused on the geological, geotechnical, geophysical, seismological and archaeological aspects, whereas studies on the coastal part of the LNG terminal, in addition, included geodetic and hydrographic surveying.

The objective of the Action was to gather and assess data on the composition and the geological structure of the onshore LNG terminal foundation soil. The Action contributed to the design stage of the PCI 6.5.1 and provided important input for the onshore LNG terminal building permit.
