The LNG Market

Due to its advantages as regards the environment, safety, competitiveness and diversification, LNG has emerged as the world's preferred and fastest-growing fuel.

Forecasts for the coming years point to strong growth of the LNG industry due to factors that include world interest in the development of energies that are both efficient and clean, sustained growth of demand in developing countries such as China and India, the discovery of new reserves and the development of technologies that make it viable to extract natural gas from non-conventional sources.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) anticipates that, by 2035, natural gas will account for 25% of the world's energy matrix.

LNG in Chile

As a result of the uncertainty generated from 2004 in the provision and price of natural gas delivered by pipeline from Argentina, two projects for LNG regasification terminals were developed in Chile, to ensure the country's access to a secure, reliable supply of natural gas in the form of LNG. This would allow supplies to be purchased from producers anywhere in the world:

The GNL Quintero Terminal (www.gnlquintero.com), located on the Quintero Bay of the Valparaíso Region, opened in 2009 with a production capacity of 15 million cubic meters per day.

The GNL Mejillones Terminal (www.gnlm.cl), located in Mejillones Bay, Antofagasta Region, opened in 2010 with an initial production capacity of 5.5 million cubic metres per day.
