Brazil oil giant Petrobras released a bidding notice for the lease of the Bahia LNG regasification terminal (TR-BA) and its associated facilities. The bidding will be restricted to companies accepted in the prequalification call which will follow pre-established criteria.
“The lease is in line with the company’s strategy of improving its capital allocation and building an environment favorable to the entry of new investors in the natural gas sector,” said Petrobras.
According to the company, the TR-BA has an island-type pier with all the necessary facilities for mooring a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) and a supply vessel under contract with the FSRU.
The gas transfer is done directly between the FSRU and the supplier in the side-by-side configuration. The terminal’s gas pipeline is 45 kilometers long and 28 inches in diameter, connecting the TR-BA to two delivery points.
