The narrow peninsula comprising the Mexican state of Baja California Sur features breathtaking coastlines, cactus-filled deserts – and, since July 2021, New Fortress Energy’s newest liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal.
The newly operational La Paz facility, nestled in the eastern port of Pichilingue, will supply natural gas to the CTG La Paz and CTG Baja California Sur power plants and other local customers in Baja California Sur. Using NFE’s proprietary ISOFlex system, we can transload LNG from our larger NFE carrier vessel directly into ISO storage containers on our offshore support vessel. Back at the terminal, the ISO containers are offloaded from the support vessel onto a truck chassis using a port crane, then trucked to customer sites.
“The delivery of more affordable and cleaner-burning natural gas is a significant milestone for Baja California Sur,” said Wes Edens, Chairman and CEO of NFE.
