Argentina Opens Second LNG Import Facility

July 2011, Vol. 238 No. 7

Argentina’s second LNG import facility, a joint development between YPF S.A., ENARSA, Excelerate Energy and GNL Escobar (GNLE), was officially opened for business on June 8.

Located on the Parana River, about 30 miles outside Buenos Aires City, GNLE utilizes Excelerate Energy’s GasPort® design. As well as providing increased peak capacity for the high-demand winter months, the facility delivers additional natural gas supply and transport capacity to the Buenos Aires region. The facility began receiving cargoes on May 24 and has already offloaded four cargoes of LNG using ship-to-ship transfers. Ongoing operations and supply logistics are coordinated jointly between the three companies.
