Guanabara Bay LNG Import Terminal

Utilizing one of the industry’s largest capacity FSRUs – the Experience.

At A Glance

Under a 15-year time charter party, we provide Petrobras with one of the industry’s most advanced FSRUs — the Experience.



Project Role

Strategic Partner, FSRU Construction, Commissioning





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.

  •  173,400 m3 FSRU
  • Able to transfer up to 22.5 million cubic meters/day of natural gas to the Southeast gas pipeline network
  • Primarily serves the thermal power plants in the region
