Foreign Partners: Croatia | Gazprom Export


Russia started gas deliveries to Croatia in 1978. After the break-up of the former SFR Yugoslavia, the cooperation has been conducted on the basis of the intergovernmental agreement signed on November 10, 1992.

Long-term contracts were established between Gazprom Export and the INA Industrija Nafte Company (Prirodni Plin d.o.o. since 2009). The latest contract, signed on May 24, 2005, provided for the annual delivery to Croatia of up to 1.2 bcm of natural gas until the end of 2010. The contract was completed on December 31, 2010, all obligations of the parties being fulfilled in full. In all, more than 20 bcm of natural gas have been exported to Croatia between 1992 and 2010.

Supplies of natural gas in 2011-2016 were performed by Gazprom Schweiz AG.

In December 2016, the Framework Contract was signed between Gazprom Export and the Croatian Prvo plinarsko društvo d.o.o. (PPD) for the supply of natural gas in the first three quarters of 2017.
