Energy Logistics for the South of Chile


The LNG Supply Chain


The LNG will be delivered by LNG cargo ships or LNG Carrier (a liquid natural gas carrier).


When an LNG Carrier ship arrives, it will dock at the terminal with the help of tugs and navigation help systems.


Once the LNG Carrier ship is in position, it transfers the LNG to the tanks on the regasification platform. Subsequently, the regasification process takes place using heat exchangers, transforming the natural gas from a liquid (LNG) into its gaseous form (NG).

Terminal Marítimo GNL Talcahuano will offer regasification services through environmentally friendly technology, as no sea water will be used in the process, showing respect for marine life and contributing to the perfect sustainability of fishing, farming and gathering of marine resources at the present time in the Bay of Concepción.


After regasification, the natural gas will be transported to land through a flexible pipeline of approximately 4 km in length, part of which will be laid on the seabed and the rest will be inserted into a micro-tunnel leading to a control station on land connected to the existing natural gas transport and distribution system.
