Welcome to the website of Terminal KMS. Through the website, we hope you can grasp our activity to contribute to clean and safe energy, Natural Gas.

We conduct the reception, storage and regasification of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and the supply of Natural Gas. We started operation in June 2012, supplying Natural Gas to the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) to meet demand for the power plant (Thermal Power) in Manzanillo and sending Natural Gas to the national distribution center in Guadalajara, Jalisco.

We have two storage tanks for liquefied Natural Gas with a capacity of 150,000 m3 each. With this we are contributing to energy diversification and environmental sustainability of the country and supplying natural gas safe and stable without accidents.

We will continuously pursue excellence in the operation to fulfill our commitment to our client, sponsors and the community.
