Energía del Pacífico (EDP) is planning the construction of a new marine terminal for the unloading of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the new power plant (378 MW), located 1 km northwest of the existing Port of Acajutla.
The new marine terminal will serve as a port of call for LNG Carriers and includes a permanent mooring system for a FSRU that will store and regasify LNG and then transfer the regasified LNG through a Ø24" carbon steel pipeline to the new Power Plant. This is located 0.5 km inland from the shoreline, the FSRU is located 1.3 km offshore from the shoreline, resulting the pipeline will have an approximate total length of 1.8 km.
The selected solution is a trenchless technology under the existing cliff and out past the surface zone at - 5 m water depth, resulting in a microtunnel length of approximately 530 m.
Location: Acajutla, El Salvador
Scope of the project: Detailed engiineering, PLET
Significant data: The Pipeline End Terminal (PLET) will be installed at approximately -17 m wd and a 3D flexible riser
