Project Details

Description

The second phase of the GNL Mejillones regasification facility project contemplates the construction of a 175,000m3 storage tank to replace the existing floating storage unit (FSU). The storage tank will use "full containment" technology and be fitted with seismic monitoring and protection systems, including seismic isolators specially adapted to the vertical seismic movement common in Chile. Since 2010, GNL Mejillones has been closing long-term regasification contracts with the country's principal power generation and mining companies. The new tank also opens commercial opportunities for LNG distribution through trucks and mid-scale ships.
