Ships and Routes

LNG ships carry the Liquefied Natural Gas that is received and processed in the GNL Quintero Terminal from countries in other parts of the world where there are natural gas reserves and liquefaction plants.

These ships are specially designed to carry Liquefied Natural Gas. They may measure up to 55 metres beam (width) and 345 metres length, and transport loads of up to 265,000 cubic metres of Liquefied Natural Gas.

LNG transport is safe. LNG ships have carried out more than 68,000 voyages, sailing more than 151 million nautical miles around the world since 1964, without any incidents involving loss of life or significant material or environmental damage, spills, etc.

LNG vessels are built to strict standards, backed by the International Ship and Port Security Code. Every ship is built with a double hull (which gives it structural and thermal protection) and fitted with sophisticated monitoring and emergency response systems.

Furthermore, in line with the industry's permanent concern to maintain LNG's safety and good reputation through all the links of the production chain, the quality and operational standards of LNG ships are particularly strict.

The ships that berth at the GNL Quintero Terminal jetty must first undergo compatibility studies and comply with the conditions demanded by our Terminal Operations Manual. The condition of the ships is certified by SIREs (Ship Inspection Reports) issued by OCIMF (Oil Companies International Marine Forum).


The construction of the GNL Quintero Terminal opened a new LNG supply route to a Pacific market from the Atlantic via the Strait of Magellan. LNG ships from countries as diverse as Trinidad and Tobago, Algeria, Qatar, Equatorial Guinea, USA and Mexico have berthed at the GNL Quintero jetty.
