BP in milestone China LNG delivery

UK-based energy giant BP said Monday it started to directly supply customers in China with regasified LNG that it has imported into the country.

This is the first time that BP has created a fully integrated gas value chain into China, directly connecting upstream resources, transportation and trading with downstream gas customers, it said.

Moreover, the first cargo of gas delivered under BP’s new terminal usage agreement at the Guangdong Dapeng LNG (GDLNG) import terminal in Shenzhen, Guangdong, arrived on January 24.

Under the agreement, the energy firm has 600,000 tonnes a year tolling regasification capacity at GDLNG. BP also has a 30 percent share in the LNG terminal.

In addition to the milestone delivery, the first LNG truck fleet from the Shenzhen Dapeng LNG Marketing Company also completed its inaugural journey, BP said.

To remind, BP signed last year gas supply agreements with ENN Group and Foran Energy, both in Guangdong.

BP will supply each with 300,000 tonnes per year of pipeline gas, re-gasified from LNG, for two years from 2021.

China is currently the world’s second-largest LNG importer, behind Japan. The country has announced it aims for peak carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and to become carbon neutral by 2060.
