Who uses natural gas?

Today the main uses of the natural gas processed in the GNL Quintero Terminal are in power stations, industries, refineries, housing, businesses and transportation.

The natural gas processed in GNL Quintero supplies all the combined cycle and open cycle power stations of central Chile, allowing power to be generated more cleanly, efficiently and cheaply. Since the Terminal started operations, around 20% of the electricity generated in the Central Interconnected Grid (SIC) has been produced using this fuel.

Industries have also opted for the advantages of natural gas, receiving their supplies directly by pipeline or in the special trucks that carry LNG to their installations, where it is vaporized and consumed as natural gas.

As in the rest of the world, residential consumption of natural gas in Chile is growing day by day. Houses and flats in several regions of the country are connected to the distribution network to enable them to use this fuel for domestic cooking, washing and heating.

To these uses we can add the use of natural gas as a vehicle fuel. This market is expected to lead to important changes in this industry as it offers advantages in terms of price, consumption and environmental protection.
