HAM to build another LNG fueling station in Chile

A unit of Spain’s HAM Group has secured a contract to build another LNG fueling station for trucks in Chile, following the opening of the country’s first such facility in September last year.

Such as the prior facility in Linares, HAM Chile would design, construct, and commission this new LNG fueling station together with Lipigas, according to statement by HAM.

In addition, Transportes Transvina will own this new facility in Tabolango, Valparaiso region. The firm transports dangerous goods and with the adoption of LNG as fuel it aims to slash emissions, HAM said.

HAM expects this new public service station to go online in June.

Chile has two LNG import terminals, namely Quintero and Mejillones, with a combined capacity of about 5.5 mtpa.

Washington-based energy investor EIG and Belgium’s LNG terminal operator Fluxys recently joined forces to buy an 80 percent equity stake in GNL Quintero, the largest regasification terminal in Chile. Chile’s Enap also holds a 20 percent in the 4 mtpa facility.

According to GIIGNL, Chile imported 3.14 million tons in 2021, a rise of 16.7 percent year-on-year. Most of these volumes came from the US.
