The proposed LNG terminal is a project of TISA (Termelétrica Itacoatiara SA), a subsidiary of Grupo Dislub Equador. The terminal would be located at Grupo Dislub Equador's existing port facility on the Amazon River in Itacoatiara, Amazonas state, Brazil. Shipments of LNG would be brought upriver by boat to the terminal, where a regasification plant of unspecified capacity would supply natural gas via a 500-meter pipeline to the company's proposed 518 MW Itacoatiara power station.
In 2018, TISA submitted an environmental impact report for the gas plant and terminal project and received its initial license from Amazonas state's environmental authority IPAAM (Instituto de Proteção Ambiental do Amazonas). The company reportedly plans to enter the project in Brazil's forthcoming national energy auctions.
