January 18, 2022 [bnamericas] – Brazilian firm Blueshift Gás & Energia will deploy a liquefied natural gas storage and transfer terminal in Rio de Janeiro state’s Sepetiba Bay, according to a source familiar with the matter.

 

Named Tagoahy with an extension of 76,500m2, it will be of the offshore type, where a floating storage unit (FSU) ship with a storage capacity of approximately 125,000m3 will remain anchored, the source told BNamericas on condition of anonymity.

It will be deployed near Martins island, the access channel to Itaguaí port, and demand an investment of 52mn reais (US$10.2mn).

Tagoahy will be used for reception, storage and transfer of LNG as part of the distribution system in Rio de Janeiro and other states in the south, southeast and northeast regions. 

The imported gas will be received through an LNG carrier vessel (LNGC) with capacity of between 70,000m3 and 135,000m3, which will transship the gas in liquid phase to the FSU via the ship-to-ship modality. The stored LNG will then be transferred to small carrier vessels for transportation to other states. 

The LNG can also be moved to ISO containers with capacity of 45m3 that will then be transported for unloading at Sepetiba port.
