New Fortress Energy progresses Mexican LNG terminal construction

New Fortress Energy continues to advance construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving and regasification terminal in the port of Pichilingue, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

Over the past months, marine work has been underway at the site of the terminal. With all the necessary permits obtained for onshore construction of the power plant, additional equipment, materials, and workers will be deployed to the site to expedite the completion of the project, NFE said in its statement.

“The BCS Government is in full readiness to achieve an energy transition that promotes new public and private investments in this sector, under a sustainability scheme that helps to avoid harming the environment,” said Governor Carlos Mendoza Davis.

The facility is being constructed with power generation to provide low-cost electricity and truck loading bays for the supply of LNG to the local hotel and industrial customers.

Director of Port Authority Administration of Baja California Sur, José López Soto, said the LNG terminal at Pichilingue port is an important infrastructure project that will bring significant benefits to Baja California Sur.
