H1 gas deliveries to Chilean grid from liquefied natural gas terminal rise 16.8%

The Quintero LNG regasification terminal in central Chile delivered 1.904 billion cubic meters of natural gas to the country's grid in the first six months of 2015, up 16.8% from 1.63 billion cubic meters in the same period in 2014 and the highest total for a six-month period since it began operating five years ago.

Operator GNL Quintero said the terminal received 25 vessels in the first half of 2015, compared with 21 in the year-ago period, while plant availability averaged 99.7%, compared with 99.93% in H1 2014.

The terminal is owned by Spain's Enagas, the Oman Oil Co., state-owned oil company ENAP, power generator Endesa Chile and gas distributor Metrogas.

A project to lift processing capacity at the terminal to 15 million cubic meters/day was completed earlier this year.
