Geramar LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG Terminal in the state of Maranhão, Brazil.
The proposed location for the Geramar terminal is in the port of Itaqui, near São Luis, the capital of Maranhão state, Brazil.
- Owner: Gera Maranhão

- Type: Import
- Start Year: 2026
Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day
The proposed terminal would supply natural gas to the proposed 1.8 GW Geramar III power station currently being developed by Gera Maranhão, which received its preliminary license from the Brazilian environmental authority Ibama in June 2019. The terminal would likely be operated by a third party, and would be licensed separately from the power plant, according to documents filed in 2019 by Gera Maranhão with Ibama. Gera Maranhão is expected to enter the project in Brazil's forthcoming national energy auctions.
