Spain’s LNG terminal operator, Reganosa, has been awarded the contract to operate and maintain the 2.34 billion cubic meter/year Tema LNG regasification terminal in Ghana, currently under construction, the company announced January 7, 2021.

Tema LNG Terminal Company, which owns the terminal, awarded Reganosa the contract for the O&M of the floating storage and regasification unit, as well as the associated 6 km gas pipeline and a pressure reduction and metering station connected to the existing pipeline network, which will be in the power and industrial enclave of Tema.

Tema LNG, backed by Helios Investment Partners and Africa Infrastructure Investment Managers, is set to be the first offshore LNG receiving terminal in sub-Saharan Africa. The purpose-built FRU was built by Jiangnan Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation.
