CNOOC recently completed simultaneous roof raising on three of these giant LNG storage tanks.

The company claims these are the world’s largest LNG storage tanks. CNOOC independently developed and designed the ultra-large tanks.

Following completion in 2023, the Binhai LNG terminal will have a capacity of 6 million tons of LNG, or about 8.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas.

This is enough to cover the natural gas demand in Jiangsu province within 28 months, according to CNOOC.
