Atlantic is the operator of a four-train liquefaction facility located at Point Fortin on the southwest coast of Trinidad, and is one of the largest exporters of LNG in the world. Each Train is ultimately owned by a holding company which comprises its own group of Member companies.
Our four (4) trains use the Phillips Optimised Cascade Process which cools natural gas using refrigerants until it liquefies at atmospheric pressure. Altogether, the Facility is capable of producing up to 100,000 cubic metres of LNG per day. LNG is shipped on LNG tankers to various destinations around the world. In addition to LNG, the facility produces natural gas liquids (NGLs).
Natural gas is received from offshore fields north and east of Trinidad owned and operated by affiliates of Atlantic’s Members and others. Atlantic receives gas from suppliers and sells freight on board on long-term contracts from the Point Fortin facility with respect to Trains 1, 2 and 3. With regard to Train 4, Atlantic operates as a processor of gas.
Our business is exclusively that of a processor of natural gas, and does not include exploration, distribution or shipping.
At the operational level, we remain a world class business, with an established and proven record in the areas of safety and reliability.
However, the company is not just an energy producer and a profitable business for Trinidad and Tobago, but it also is a catalyst for the continued growth and development of Trinidad and Tobago. Whether it is as a direct result of our revenue which contributes to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Trinidad and Tobago, or through people and community development, Atlantic is set to continue being a leader in the local and global hydrocarbon industry.
