New Fortress Energy’s  6 million tonnes per annum Barcarena LNG terminal in Pará, Brazil, is now operational with the Energos Celsius floating storage regasification unit on-site (FSRU), according to a Feb. 29 press release.

Barcarena serves as the sole natural gas supply source in the state of Pará and northern Brazil, the release states. The facility consists of an offshore terminal and an FSRU that will supply LNG to several customers, including a 15-year supply agreement with Norsk Hydro’s Alunorte alumina refinery.

New Fortress says it will supply the alumina with 30 TBtu of natural gas annually to reduce the refinery’s CO2 emissions by about 700,000 tonnes per annum.

The Barcarena terminal will also supply natural gas to New Fortess’ 630-megawatt power plant, which is currently 50% complete and adjacent to the terminal. The power plant is on track to achieve completions operations date in third quarter 2025.
