ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIAL
The Bahrain LNG import terminal will be located offshore approximately 4km east of Khalifa Bin Salman Port (KBSP). The terminal location has been identified by the Urban Planning Authority and included in the development plan of the Hidd industrial area.LNG will be delivered to the import terminal by LNG Carrier ships, where it will be stored in a Floating Storage Unit (FSU). The LNG will be turned back into natural gas using sea water to warm the LNG. The natural gas will then be transferred in a buried pipeline to shore where it will supply the existing natural gas pipeline network operated by BAPCO.
