The main items of the port in the first phase will include an LNG tank with a capacity of 180,000 cu.m and the most modern technological equipment matching Vietnamese and international standards. In the second phase (expected to be completed in 2023), the project capacity will be upgraded to three million tonnes.

The Thi Vai LNG storage project will be an important link in supplying renewable gas for consumers, including the Nhon Trach 3 and 4 power plant chain. Combined with Son My LNG import terminal with the total expected capacity of 10 million tonnes of LNG each year, the energy demand of the southern region in the future will basically be covered.
