Shell granted environmental permit for Baja California LNG terminal

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Apr. 28 -- Royal Dutch/Shell unit Shell Gas & Power said the Mexican authority SEMARNAT granted an environmental permit Apr 8 for Shell's proposed LNG regasification terminal in Baja California, Mexico (OGJ Online, Apr. 8, 2002).

The terminal, expected to begin operations in 2007, will be in Costa Azul, 23 km north of Ensenada on Mexico's west coast. It will have a regasification capacity of 7.5 million tonnes/year. Regasified LNG will serve power plants and industrial customers in northwestern Mexico, with surplus gas marketed into southern California.

Shell has secured initial supplies for the proposed terminal and said studies required for other permits are underway.

The Resilient Oilfield in the Internet of Things World

Tue, Sep 22, 2015

As we hear about the hype surrounding the Internet of Things, the oil and gas industry is questioning what is different than what is already being done.
