New Fortress Energy’s Terminal Gas Sul LNG Terminal Enters Operation

Published on: 

Terminal Gas Sul is a 6 MTPA offshore LNG import terminal with an Energos Winter floating storage regasification unit and a 33 km pipeline onsite.

New Fortress Energy has placed its Terminal Gas Sul (TGS) LNG terminal into operation in Santa Catarina, Brazil, along with Energos’ Winter floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) onsite. TGS is an offshore LNG import terminal with an approximate capacity of 6 MTPA (300 TBtu) and a maximum gas send out of 500 mmscf/day.


In addition to the Energos Winter FSRU, the terminal also includes a 33 km, 20-inch pipeline which connects the facility to the inland Brasileira Gasoduto Bolivia-Brasil (TBG) pipeline. The terminal is connected via pipeline to the Brazilian gas market, including more than 3.5 GW of power that does not have long-term gas supply contracts. TGS is also connected to more than 300 TBtu of industrial and residential gas consumers in southern Brazil.

“TGS is directly connected to more than 3.5 GW of existing power infrastructure that lacks firm supply agreements, making the terminal a key asset in Brazil’s evolving energy landscape,” said Wes Edens, Chairman and CEO of New Fortress Energy. “With numerous new power projects required to balance the grid in Brazil in the near term, NFE is poised to meet growing demand by leveraging its vertically integrated portfolio of LNG assets and expertise."

With power and gas demands set to increase while Bolivia’s gas supply has declined, the TGS terminal will serve as essential infrastructure for the Brazilian market. TGS will allow New Fortress Energy to meet the region’s power and gas requirements.
