Excelerate Energy’s Northeast Gateway Offshore Terminal Delivers Record LNG Output

Excelerate Energy announced that its Northeast Gateway deepwater terminal, located in Massachusetts Bay, 13 miles offshore of Boston, reached a historic peak send-out flow rate of more than 800,000 MMBtu/day of LNG on February 1, 2019. The Northeast Gateway terminal consists of a dual submerged turret-loading buoy system which allows for the connection of floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs) that have the onboard capability to vaporize LNG and deliver natural gas directly into the existing subsea HubLine pipeline operated by Enbridge’s Algonquin Gas Transmission. According to the press release, LNG imports from the Northeast Gateway facility help bring much-needed market stability and fuel security to the Northeast region during peak demand, allowing generators to continue burning natural gas when normal supplies are constrained.
