LNG Regasification Terminals in Brazil - Overview of Main Projects

In the last energy auctions in Brazil, most of the successful thermoelectric projects considered natural gas thermoelectric plants linked to LNG terminals in their business model. This alternative has proven to be one of the most competitive for hiring new energy. The consequent increase in the number of LNG terminal projects for supplying natural gas to thermal power plants on the Brazilian coast could bring a greater diversity of supply to the market.

In an open market, as intended with the New Gas Market, this can become a competitive advantage as it ensures operational safety for the carrier and shipper, while also allowing for LNG demand to be met in the events of infrastructure maintenance. Thus, this paper presents an overview of the main LNG regasification terminal projects on the Brazilian coast and discusses some relevant points in the decision making for the construction of these infrastructures, such as the construction of terminals in public ports or terminals for private use outside the Organized Port area, and the main steps to obtain licenses and permits for this type of terminal.
