First lighthouse working with gas

Hallo everyone,
do you know which is/was the first lighthouse to work with gas ever?
There is one sitted in Savudrja, Croatia which is said to have been the first in the Mediterranean and it is dated 1818. Some historians mention that it was designed taking some other lighthouse in North Europe.
Thanks for help!
