Distrigas of Massachusetts is one of the oldest businesses in Everett, having begun importing liquefied natural gas (LNG) into the Everett Marine Terminal in the Island End section of Everett in 1971. We’re proud to contribute to the growth that Everett has experienced over the past 40 years.
Distrigas today provides about 20 percent of the natural gas used to heat Everett and Boston homes and businesses – and those throughout New England. Imported as LNG, natural gas from our Everett facility is delivered to utilities across the region and also to the power plants, including the one right here in our community. In December 2010, Distrigas’s 1,000th LNG cargo arrived in Everett.
Distrigas is part of GDF SUEZ Energy North America, Inc. (GSENA), which manages a range of energy businesses in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. These businesses include electricity generation and cogeneration, natural gas and LNG distribution and sales, asset-based trading and origination, and retail energy sales and related services to commercial and industrial customers. GSENA is part of the international energy group, GDF SUEZ.
This past year, Distrigas completed construction of a 6,000 square-foot Visitors Center adjacent to the Everett Terminal on the corner of Rover and Commercial Streets. The new facility has enabled Distrigas to more adequately accommodate visitors to the terminal. The Visitors Center is serving as a welcome/orientation center with a reception area, security office, waiting lounge, conference room, and roof deck.
