GTT bags order for 4 large Chinese LNG storage tanks

France’s GTT has won an order from China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering (HQC) to design four very large LNG storage tanks.

The new award follows a cooperation deal GTT signed with China’s Beijing Gas Group, a unit of Beijing Enterprises Group, earlier this year regarding the construction of up to six new LNG tanks at the Tianjin Nangang terminal.

GTT and HQC are already constructing two 220,000-cbm storage tanks for Beijing Gas’ 5 mtpa LNG terminal in the Tianjin south port industrial zone.

Under the new deal, GTT will design four tanks related to the second expansion stage of the facility.

Each tank would offer a capacity of 220,000 cbm and feature GTT’s GST technology, the French firm said.

Furthermore, the partners expects to complete the tanks in the third quarter of 2023.

The construction of the terminal includes four LNG storage tanks in the first phase, four tanks in the second, and two in the third.

Beijing Gas plans to launch the first phase of the Tianjin Nangang project in the fourth quarter of 2022.
