GNL Quintero, the Chilean regasification facility, said it had loaded the 50,000th truck with liquefied natural gas (LNG) at its truck loading station.

The truck loading station has been operating since 2011 and consists of four independent loading bays.

Trucks deliver LNG to markets throughout the country not served by natural gas pipelines. The fuel is used for both industrial and residential purposes.

Since 2014, the facility has had a capacity to load 2,500 cbm of LNG per day or around 50 trucks. This follows the addition of two new loading bays that doubled the facility’s loading capacity.

GNL Quintero said in a statement that the facility has become a fundamental part of the terminal as an LNG distribution channel that has accompanied the development of the natural gas industry in Chile.

Quintero LNG terminal is the first land-based plant for the reception, unloading, storage and regasification of LNG in the southern hemisphere. It started operations in 2009.

GNL Quintero is a joint venture of Enap (20%), Enagás (40%), Omers Infrastructure Chile Holdings (29.6%) and the rest is held by Terminal de Bahía de Quintero formed by Enagás and Omers.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
