GDF Suez Expands in Chile

GDF Suez Expands in Chile

GDF Suez will be expanding its environmental and energy efficiency services in Chile by acquiring Térmika, a leader in the design, installation and management of energy services.

It will now develop its businesses under the brand “Cofely Térmika, GDF Suez Group”. Térmika provides two of the most important industrial companies in Chile among its main customers: BHP Billiton and Antofagasta Minerals, to whom GDF Suez is already providing energy.

With this acquisition, GDF Suez, the European leader in energy services, is now present in a country with high demand for energy efficiency services and enjoys a solid foothold for developing sustainable business in the region, working with other Group companies.

Chile is an important country for GDF Suez. The Group is the top electricity generator in northern Chile and operates facilities including the Mejillones LNG receiving and regasification terminal. Recently, the Group announced major achievements to support Chile’s strong growth prospects, inaugurating two thermal power plants having a total capacity of 300 MW. Finally, in renewable energy, the Group operates the Monte Redondo wind farm, the second largest in Chile with an installed capacity of 48 MW, and is currently building the Laja I hydroelectric plant with a capacity of 34 MW.

A recognized, established player in energy services in Chile, Térmika generated nearly $16 million in revenues with some 250 employees. Cofely Térmika provides tertiary and industrial companies in the country with environment-friendly solutions, whether through industrial utilities or environmental engineering, to meet their energy needs and optimize their consumption.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
