THE PORT OF ENTRY
FOR LPG IN CHILE

25 years importing clean energy for Chile.

Energy for life

Since 1994, Gasmar has had a key role: to import, store and dispatch quality LPG to reach the homes of many Chilean families, for cooking and to heat their homes and water. 
The company has the largest LPG terminal on the Pacific coast of South America located in Quintero Bay, and it is building a new terminal in Mejillones Bay that will begin operations in 2021.

PROCESSES: FOCUSED ON PREVENTION

Gasmar’s day-to-day work is closely related to risk prevention. This involves the permanent inspection of infrastructure and equipment, the verification of each unit’s condition and the permanent training of its workers in the management of emergency situations.

UNLOADING AT THE DOCKS

At least once a month, Gasmar receives a ship loaded with LPG at third-party port facilities, just in front of its Quintero plant. About 85% of the product that Gasmar currently receives comes from Houston, Texas, United States.

Distribution

Gasmar transports 85% of the LPG via pipeline to Santiago, and 15% in gas tanker trucks, amounting to about 550,000 tonnes each year. This is the equivalent of filling approximately 35 million gas cylinders each season.

Storage

With a storage capacity of 145,000 m³ in Quintero and 20,000 m³ in Mejillones (under construction), Gasmar manages a permanent stock of LPG to serve Chile’s needs.

Safety

Gasmar is a safe logistical operation with limited risks, given the nature of its operations, i.e., the reception, storage and transportation of LPG. There are no production processes.

The uses of LPG

This clean fuel is mainly used for residential purposes such as cooking and heating. On a smaller scale, LPG is also used in industrial processes and electricity generation, and it is an excellent complement to renewable energies.
