The north coast terminal has an area of 10,860.54 m2 of land and 5,425.12 m2 of water (seabed). All of this is located within the Panama Ports Company concession.
The north coast terminal currently has a tank with a storage capacity of 180,000 m3 of liquefied natural gas, a dock for vessels of between 3,000 m3 and 160,000 m3, a regasification facility, and a truck loading terminal for LNG distribution.
Adjacent to the terminal area is the Atlantic natural gas generation plant with a generating capacity of 381 MW, the plant and terminal auxiliary buildings, as well as the administrative buildings.
Installation of a 20-inch, 1.5 km underground gas pipeline consisting of cryogenic piping, valves, couplings, a hipps (high integrity pressure protection system) high-pressure management system, and a measurement and monitoring system.
