Samsung C&T completes LNG facility in MexicoSamsung C&T, Korea’s leading trading firm, said yesterday it has completed the construction of a liquefied natural gas facility in Mexico.
The facility in Manzanillo, a port west of Mexico City, can process 3.8 million metric tons of LNG annually, and also has two LNG tankers that each store 150,000 kiloliters.
Samsung C&T and the state-run Korea Gas own 37.5 percent and 25 percent of the project, respectively, with the remaining held by a Japanese firm.
The project was ordered in 2009 by Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission to secure and supply natural gas. Samsung C&T and Kogas joined the project as investors and operators.
The two Korean firms have the right to operate the facility over the next 20 years.
