In late 2020, it was announced that Golar Power was building a natural gas liquefaction plant in the city of Uruguaiana near Brazil's border with Uruguay and Argentina. Capacity of the plant is reportedly 100,000 cubic meters per day. Gas will be supplied from neighboring Argentina under an agreement already approved by Brazil's national petroleum agency ANP and by the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME). The LNG produced at the plant will be distributed by truck to customers in southern Brazil.[1][3]

In April 2021, New Fortress Energy acquired the Uruguaiana Liquefaction Plant project from Golar Energy's successor, Hygo Energy Transition.[2]
