LNG IMPORT TERMINAL

The Hera and Betano power plants were installed in 2011 and Inur Sakato (Oecusse) power plant was installed in 2015. These installed generators have capability for conversion to fire on natural gas. The three power plants have a combined installed capacity of 272 MW.

The electricity consumption in Timor-Leste is mainly subsidized by the government through annual budget which is executed by EDTL. With the high subsidy, it burdens the state budget. Therefore, the government of Timor-Leste energy plan considers achieving a significant reduction of both fuel supply cost and greenhouse gas emissions by conversion of the main power plants to fire on natural gas. A study to convert the Wartsila engines is currently in progress with the EDTL.

The reduction on annual state expenditure and environmental impact improvement present a compelling case for Timor-Leste to invest in the infrastructure needed to support conversion of the power plants. TIMOR GAP is therefore planning to develop an LNG import terminal facility in order to supply Hera, Betano and Innur Sakato power stations with natural gas fuel. TIMOR GAP intends to conduct an initial feasibility study to select a site for an LNG Import facility and define the development concept.
