Izmir Aliaga LNG Terminal is an LNG receipt terminal in Izmir, Turkey owned by EgeGaz. The LNG terminal was the first in the world to be built without firm capacity contracts in place. It received its first LNG shipment in December 2006, more than three years after the facility was commissioned.
The LNG terminal includes two LNG storage tanks, each with a capacity of 140,000 m3, regasification equipment with a capacity of 6 billion cubic meters per year, and a jetty capable of accepting LNG carriers up to Q-Max.
The terminal is used to supply BOTAŞ, Turkey's state-owned oil and gas company.
