GDF SUEZ Business Project: GDF SUEZ brings LNG to Uruguay
In October 2013, GDF SUEZ has signed a 15-year BOOT (Build, Own, Operate and Transfer) contract with Gas Sayago S.A. for LNG storage and regasification services in Uruguay. Commercial operation of the new terminal is expected in 2015.
Located in the Punta Sayago area, close to Montevideo, the offshore terminal, GNL del Plata, will comprise a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) and a jetty, protected by a 1.5 km breakwater. The entire capacity of the terminal, which will be capable of receiving LNG carriers up to 218,000m3, will be reserved by the off-taker Gas Sayago.
Development of LNG regasification capacity forms part of Uruguay’s Energy Policy 2005-2030 and has been identified as a priorty by the Government. GNL del Plata is one of Uruguay’s most important infrastructure projects and will contribute positively to a significant change in the country’s energy mix by providing an additional clean fuel source with access to international markets.
The project will also reduce the proportion of imported oil in the country’s energy supply.
