PipeChina: roofs raised on two Beihai LNG tanks

State-owned LNG terminal operator PipeChina has completed lifting the roofs on two storage tanks at its Beihai LNG terminal in the Guangxi province.

The synchronized operation of lifting the roofs using air pressure on two 200,000-cbm LNG tanks took place on September 19, according to a statement by PipeChina’s LNG terminal management unit.

PipeChina said the fifth and the sixth storage tank are part of the second phase of the Beihai LNG import terminal.

The firm did not say when it expects to complete the construction of these tanks.

China launched PipeChina in December 2019 to acquire pipelines and LNG import terminals from the country’s state-owned energy giants.

PipeChina took over the Beihai LNG terminal from Sinopec.

The 6 mtpa LNG terminal currently has four tanks with a total storage capacity of 640,000 cbm.

In October last year, the Beihai LNG terminal, located in the Tieshan Port Industrial Zone in Beihai Zhuang Autonomous region, received a cargo onboard the Q-Flex LNG carrier, Al Sahla, chartered by Qatargas.

At the time, the 216,200-cbm Q-Flex LNG carrier was the largest LNG carrier to call at the terminal since the start of its operations in 2016.

PipeChina LNG Terminal Management currently operates seven LNG receiving terminals.

This accounts for about one-third of China’s total LNG receiving capacity.

Also, the firm is building three new LNG terminals in Shandong, Fujian, and Shenzhen.
