Once operational, the facility will have a capacity of one million metric tonnes of LNG a year. PV Gas plans to increase the capacity to three mpta in the next development phase.

The construction took off in October 2019. PV Gas expects to put the terminal into operation by the second half of 2022, as it is currently 90 per cent completed.

The facility is located in Vietnam’s Ba Ria-Vung Tau province.

Moreover, it is a part of a series of energy projects in Vietnam.
