Contract Ex-celerates Argentinian LNG supply


Excelerate Energy L.L.C. has executed agreements to provide another two years of LNG regasification services to South America’s first-ever LNG importation facility, at the port city of Bahía Blanca, around 643km south of Buenos Aires in Argentina.

Constructed in June 2008, the Bahía Blanca GasPort LNG facility is South America’s first-ever LNG receiving facility and the world’s second dockside regasification facility. Excelerate’s Energy Bridge Regasification Vessel (EBRV), named Excelsior, will arrive in May to bring natural gas supplies to the country throughout the winter season.

As well as ensuring that LNG will reach the country through the winter season, the cargo will be delivered through the Bahía Blanca GasPort directly into Argentina’s gas distribution system and represents an innovative development in LNG delivery.

The Bahia Blanca GasPort took less than six months to construct and commence operations, with Excelerate Energy currently the only LNG company in the world using GasPort technology. This innovation will see the Excelsior dock alongside a dedicated jetty, where it connects to the onshore natural gas pipeline via the company’s specially designed dockside high-pressure gas off-loading arm, and feeds natural gas directly into the country’s gas distribution system.
