Golar Power develops an LNG import terminal in the Port of Suape

Golar Power signed a Protocol of Intentions with the State Government of Pernambuco to develop an LNG import terminal in the Port of Suape, located in the northeast of Brazil. With operations scheduled to start in the second half of 2020, the project includes infrastructure for the supply of natural gas and LNG to generate electricity. The Golar Power terminal intends to use an existing LNG carrier, permanently docked at the Suape Port. The vessel will act as a supplier to truck mounted LNG ISO-Containers.
