Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation (PV GAS) is expected to receive the first imported LNG shipment from Shell tomorrow on July 10. Tanker Maran Gas Achilles ship will transport 70,000 tonnes of LNG from Bontang port in Indonesia to Th? V?i LNG terminal in southern Bà R?a-Vung Tàu province.
Deputy General Director of PV GAS Tr?n Nh?t Huy said that the company has completed the construction of the infrastructure of the Th? V?i LNG terminal and it is ready for LNG import and export.
PV GAS said that LNG infrastructure will basically meet the energy demand for the Southern region in the future.
The Thi Vai LNG import facility consists of one 180,000-cbm LNG tank, a jetty, and regas area.
The terminal will have a capacity of 1 mtpa in its first phase, but the company plans to boost the capacity to 3 to 6 mtpa in the next stage. Also, it will be an important link in supplying gas to consumers, including the Nhon Trach 3 and 4 power plants.
