Midstream is an intermediate stage of the LNG value chain that liquefies, transports, stores, regasifies, and distributes the natural gas which is secured upstream. SK E&S has established the entire midstream area by securing the liquefaction facilities and LNG vessels from Freeport LNG of the U.S. and operating Boryeong LNG Terminal.
  • Have a liquefaction terminal in the U.S.

    SK E&S signed an agreement on the use of natural gas liquefaction facilities with an annual capacity of 2.2 million tons with Freeport LNG, an American firm. It has imported American shale gas since 2020.
  • Freeport project
  • Boryeong LNG Terminal
  • Built Boryeong LNG Terminal

    SK E&S has jointly operated Boryong LNG Terminal with GS Energy since 2017.
    It is a facility that imports LNGs secured from abroad into Korea, then unloads, stores, mechanizes, and transmits them, and it is a key infrastructure of LNG midstream in Korea.
  • Secured LNG carrier

    To transport shale gas liquefied in Freeport Terminal in the U.S., SK E&S has been Korea's first private operator of a fleet only for the transportation since 2019.

  • Secured LNG terminal in China and sold LNG in China.

    In July 2020, it secured a stake in Zhouxian LNG Terminal in Zhejiang Province, China, supplying about 500,000 tons of LNG annually to China.
  • Contribute to power supply in Korea by operating natural gas power plants

    SK E&S operates a natural gas power plant that uses natural gas to produce electricity and is responsible for domestic energy supply and demand.
  • SK E&S Power Plant

SK E&S plans to shift its LNG business
to a low carbon LNG business based on CCS technology.
