Mexico’s first-ever Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) cargo has docked at the Altamira regasification terminal, a project developed as a joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell, Total and Mitsui.

The terminal, near Tampico, Tamaulipas, on the country’s Northeast coast, will supply new power generation with Mexico’s power authority, Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) contracted to purchase 5.2 bcm of regasified LNG per annum from Altamira for power generation.

Commercial deliveries of natural gas to CFE are expected to commence in October.
