CNOOC’s Fujian LNG terminal hits new milestone

CNOOC’s liquefied natural gas import terminal in China’s Fujian province has received more than 700 cargoes of LNG since the start of operations in 2008.

CNOOC’s gas and power unit revealed this in a statement issued on Tuesday.

The 2016-built 174,000-cbm, Maran Gas Achilles, owned by a joint venture of Greece’s Maran Gas and Qatar’s Nakilat, has on November 20 delivered about 70,000 tonnes of LNG to the facility on the southeastern coast of China.

With this shipment, the Fujian terminal received more than 700 cargoes since 2018.

Moreover, the LNG import terminal received 43 million tonnes of imported LNG, equivalent to about 61.8 billion cubic meters of natural gas, CNOOC Gas & Power said.

Earlier this year, the total volumes received exceeded the 40 million tonnes mark.

State-owned CNOOC previously said the terminal supplies more than 80 percent of natural gas in the Fujian province and is the only facility that provides gas for gas-fired power plants in the province.

The facility has six 160,000-cbm LNG storage tanks and a regasification capacity of 6.3 mtpa.

CNOOC’s unit said that it has maintained “high level” of LNG in the storage tanks, laying a solid foundation for securing supply in winter.

In addition, CNOOC Gas & Power said that Fujian LNG is preparing to build a new 270,000-cbm LNG storage tank with the largest capacity in the world.

In October, CNOOC hydro tested one of the six 270,000-cbm LNG storage tanks at its Binhai LNG import terminal in Jiangsu.

The firm is also building five 270,000-cbm tanks at its Zhuhai LNG import terminal in Guangdong.

China’s state-controlled energy giant Sinopec recently put in use what it says is the world’s largest LNG storage tank at its Qingdao LNG import terminal in Shandong province.

The tank has a storage capacity of 270,000 cbm and is the first such operational tank in China and the world, according to Sinopec.
