The Celba LNG Terminal project is owned by Celba (Centrais Elétricas Barcarena), a consortium formed by New Fortress Energy (formerly Hygo Energy Transition and Golar Power)[6][9] and the Brazilian company Oak Participações.[4] New Fortress also operates the Sergipe FSRU project in Sergipe state[5], which became Brazil's first private LNG terminal when it commenced operations in February 2020.[10]

The proposed Celba LNG project consists of a 15 MMcmd FSRU (floating storage and regasification unit) in the Pará River, moored in a ship-to-ship configuration to a fixed terminal near the port of Vila do Conde.[2] Natural gas from the terminal would be transported via pipeline to clients in Barcarena's industrial zone, including the Hydro Alunorte aluminum company and Celba's proposed 605 MW Novo Tempo Barcarena power station; the latter project was approved in Brazil's October 2019 energy auction and given priority status by Pará's state government in November 2019.[1][2][3][11]

In August 2020, the Brazilian government issued an installation license authorizing Celba to build the terminal and power plant in a part of Vila do Conde port known as "Area 3."[3][12] In October 2020, Hygo Energy Transition signed a letter of agreement to sell gas from the terminal to Companhia de Gás do Pará, which holds exclusive rights to distribute natural gas throughout Pará state.[7] Brazilian hydrocarbons regulator ANP (Agência Nacional do Petróleo, Gás Natural e Biocombustíveis) granted final approval for construction of the terminal in December 2020.[4] Commercial operations are expected to begin in the first half of 2022.[7][8]
