China’s Beijing Gas raises roofs on four Tianjin Nangang LNG tanks

China’s Beijing Gas has completed lifting the roofs on four 220,000-cbm LNG storage tanks located at its Tianjin Nangang import terminal as part of the project’s second phase.

The state-owned gas distributor is building in total ten LNG storage tanks in three phases, along with other facilities such as a jetty.

Last year, Bejing Gas completed raising the roofs on the first four 220,000-cbm LNG storage tanks as part of the first phase with a capacity of about 5 mtpa.

Beijing Gas said in a statement on Thursday it plans to complete the first phase by the end of this year.

Additionally, the terminal in the Tianjin south port industrial zone will have four tanks in the second and two in the third phase.

These membrane containment tanks will feature GTT’s GST technology.

Beijing Gas said it completed raising the roof of the fourth tank under the second phase on July 20.

In total, it has now completed roof raising on eight LNG storage tanks.

The firm expects to finalize the second phase by the end of 2023, while the two tanks from the third phase should launch in 2024.
