The Petrobras LNG Regasification Terminal in Bahia brings greater flexibility and assurances to natural gas supplies in Brazil, with regasification capacity now up to 41 million m³/day.
At precisely 1:13 pm on Friday (January 24, 2014), Petrobras added to the Brazilian gas pipeline network the first regasified LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) from its new Regasification Terminal, located in Baía de Todos os Santos, Salvador, in the state of Bahia. The Bahia Regasification Terminal (TRBA) has a regasification capacity of 14 million m³/day of natural gas. With the new terminal now in operation, Petrobras' natural gas regasification capacity has risen from 27 million m³/day to 41 million m³/day, equivalent to almost one and half times the capacity to import gas from Bolivia.
The company is already operating the regasification terminals at Pecém (Ceará state) and Guanabara Bay (Rio de Janeiro state) with their respective regasification capacities of 7 million m³/day and 20 million m³/day of natural gas.
