Atlantic LNG

An economic tower of strength for Trinidad & Tobago

Atlantic LNG is one of the main pillars of the Trinidad and Tobago economy. The company was established in 1995 and is among the world’s largest exporters of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The company produces LNG from a four-train liquefaction facility at Point Fortin. Each train is ultimately owned by a holding company, comprising its own group of member companies (see panel, right).

At Point Fortin, Atlantic LNG has two jetties of 700 meters in length. Each jetty can accommodate an LNG carrier of up to 145,000 cubic meters capacity. The facility is able to produce up to 100,000 cubic meters of LNG per day, which is shipped to contracted customers in South America, Asia and Spain. The plant also produces natural gas liquid (NGL) products such as ethane and propane.
