EGAT and PTT plan a 5 Mt/year LNG import terminal in Thailand

22 Apr 2021

Thailand's state-owned power utility Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) and the national oil and gas group PTT plan to jointly develop a 5 Mt/year (6.75 bcm/year) floating storage re-gasification unit (FSRU) in southern Thailand. The proposed FSRU would replace a FSRU planned by EGAT in the Gulf of Thailand, initially expected to supply its South Bangkok power plant but that had been scrapped by the National Energy Policy Council (NEPC). The new joint project would supply gas to a new 1,400 MW gas-fired power plant developed by EGAT in Surat Thani's Phunphin district, which should be commissioned between 2027 and 2029.

Thailand’s first LNG regasification terminal in Map Ta Phut near Rayong was commissioned in 2011. The facility has a capacity of 10 Mt/year (13.5 bcm/year), following a doubling of its capacity in 2018, and two storage tanks of 160,000 m3 each.
