CNOOC raises roofs on two giant Zhuhai LNG tanks

A unit of China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) has completed lifting the roofs on two giant tanks at its Zhuhai LNG import terminal in Guangdong.

The synchronized operation of lifting the roofs using air pressure on two 270,000-cbm LNG tanks took place on February 25, according to a statement by CNOOC Gas & Power.

These tanks are part of the expansion phase of CNOOC’s Jinwan “Green Energy Port” in Zhuhai, which includes in total five 270,000-cbm LNG tanks.

CNOOC Gas & Power claims these are the world’s largest onshore LNG storage tanks by capacity, such as those six at CNOOC’s Jiangsu-Binhai LNG terminal.

The Zhuhai facility currently has three LNG storage tanks with each having a capacity of 160,000 cbm and a regasification capacity of 3.5 mtpa.

Also, it recently received its 300th cargo of LNG since 2013 for total volume of 20.3 million tons, equivalent to 28 billion cubic meters of natural gas, providing a “strong clean energy support” for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, CNOOC said.

Besides adding the five giant tanks, the Zhuhai LNG Phase II project will double the regasification capacity of the terminal.

According to CNOOC, the expansion phase is more than 50 percent complete.

The firm expects to launch the second phase in 2024.
