This is the structure that receives LNG ships. It was built to the highest standards to ensure its safe operation.


The jetty is the infrastructure that enables the Terminal to receive the ships that transport the LNG. It has a length of 1.9 kilometers, an average height of 12.5 meters and a depth of 24 meters at its head and can receive ships with a capacity of up to 265,000 cubic meters of LNG. Its structure is supported by 504 piles and was designed to withstand natural events of great magnitude, such as earthquakes and tidal waves.

Its state-of-the-art Navigation Docking and MetOcean Unit (NDMO) system uses satellite information to provide real-time data about the position of a ship as well as meteorological information. This precise information ensures that docking maneuvers can be carried out safely.

Five latest-technology arms, located at the head of the jetty, are used to unload LNG from the ships. The LNG is then pumped through a network of cryogenic pipes from the jetty to the storage tanks.

The Terminal is certified under the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) protocol and by the Chilean Maritime Authority.
