Cnooc's Zhuhai Terminal Receives Omani LNG

Cnooc Gas and Power’s Zhuhai LNG import terminal August 16 received more than 61,000 metric tons of LNG from Oman, the company said August 20. This was the 122nd LNG vessel that the terminal has received since it was put into operation in October 2013.

During the six years of operation, Zhuhai terminal has unloaded over 8mn mt of LNG. The terminal, located in China’s Guangdong province, has a capacity of 3.5mn mt/yr and supplies gas to cities of Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Foshan, Zhuhai, Zhongshan, Macao and Jiangmen.

Cnooc Gas and Power said that continuous high temperatures have boosted the demand for gas in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau. Since July, Zhuhai terminal has supplied record volumes of regasified LNG via pipeline and LNG via tanker trucks. Late-July, Cnooc Gas and Power said the terminal supplied 20mn mof regasified LNG to customers downstream on July 19, highest ever single day transmission since the terminal came online. The terminal has loaded record 232 tanker trucks in a single day, the company said without saying on which date the record was set.

Cnooc Gas and Power operates nine LNG import terminals at Tianjin, Shanghai, Ningbo, Putian, Yuedong, Dapeng, Zhuhai, Hainan and Shenzhen. The company has started work  on its 10th terminal.
