Cnooc to supply gas to Zhongtang power plant

Cnooc Gas and Power’s Guangdong Dapeng LNG terminal will supply gas to the Zhongtang gas-fired power plant in Dongguan City in Guangdong province, the company said on June 8.

Dapeng, the first LNG import terminal to be built in China, will supply 400mn m3/year of gas to the plant. Guangdong Dapeng LNG Co has signed a gas transportation agreement with Dongguan Yuepeng Gas Pipeline Co, Cnooc Gas and Power said.

Guangdong Dapeng terminal started with an initial capacity of 3.7mn mt/yr. Its present capacity is 7.7mn mt/yr. The terminal supplies gas to cities such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Huizhou, Dongguan, Foshan and Hong Kong through a 441-km pipeline.

The terminal is located in Shenzhen at Chengtoujiao, Dapeng Bay, Guangdong province, and receives LNG from Australia and Qatar. Cnooc Gas and Power, with a 33% interest, is the biggest shareholder in Guangdong Dapeng LNG Co, which operates the terminal. BP has the second-largest stake at 30%. 

Cnooc Gas and Power, a unit of state-run Cnooc, now operates nine LNG import terminals at Tianjin, Shanghai, Ningbo, Putian, Yuedong, Dapeng, Zhuhai, Hainan and Shenzhen.
