A global LNG infrastructure company has signed an agreement to develop an LNG import terminal in a South American port.

Golar LNG signed a Protocol of Intentions with the State Government of Pernambuco to develop an LNG import terminal in the state-managed Port of Suape in Brazil.

Due to start operating in the second half of 2020, the Golar Power terminal intends to use an existing LNG carrier, permanently docked at the Suape Port.

The vessel will act as a supplier to truck mounted LNG ISO-Containers. These vehicles will then distribute LNG to cities within a radius of up to 1,000km. Initial trucked volumes are estimated at 800m3 of LNG a day, equivalent to approximately 480,000 m3 of natural gas per day.

LNG will also be distributed from Suape to other states in Brazil, through cabotage using small-scale LNG carriers that will be supplied by transhipment and used to transport LNG to other ports in the region.

The project includes infrastructure for the supply of natural gas and LNG to generate electricity, in addition to meeting the demands of industries, commerce, LNG stations and households.

To this end, Golar Power will work in partnership with the local gas distribution company, Companhia Pernambucana de Gás Natural (Copergás) to bring natural gas to regions of the State that are not yet served by traditional pipeline networks.

The project is expected to use the existing port infrastructure owned by the State Government.
