Cnooc's Zhuhai Terminal Receives Yamal Cargo
Cnooc Gas and Power’s Zhuhai import terminal September 14 received 70,000 metric tons of LNG from the Yamal project, the company said September 18.
Cnooc Gas and Power, a unit of state-owned Cnooc, said the LNG cargo was delivered to Zhuhai via the Northern Sea Route (NSR) by an Arc7 ice-class LNG carrier in 20 days. Russian independent Novatek shipped its first cargo of LNG from Yamal LNG to the Cnooc in November last year.
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.
According to Cnooc Gas and Power, Guangdong province has become the second-largest consumer of natural gas in China. The proportion of natural gas in primary energy consumption has increased from 1.3% in 2006 to 8.4% in 2017, it said.
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.
