Guanabara Bay LNG Import Terminal, utilizing the industry’s largest capacity FSRU – the Experience.
Under a 15-year time charter party, Excelerate Energy provides Petrobras with the industry’s most advanced FSRU — the Experience. Having already built the Guanabara Bay LNG Import Terminal in 2009, Petrobras contracted Excelerate to build a more capable FSRU in order to keep up with projected demand. With the Experience, the facility was upgraded to 170,000 cubic meters of LNG storage capacity and a sendout capability of 22.5 million cubic meters per day.
While the Experience was in production, Excelerate Energy was able to provide a crucially important bridging solution by placing one of its existing purpose-built FSRUs at the facility. The Experience docked in Guanabara Bay on May 6 2014, and the first commercial operations commenced nine days later. To this day, the Experience still continues to guarantee the supply of 50% of the country’s LNG regasification capacity.
