Sinopec’s Tianjin LNG Terminal Sets Record
Sinopec’s Tianjin LNG terminal near Beijing has received a record 7.25mn metric tons of LNG in the year up to December 15, the company said on December 16.
Since its commissioning in February 2018, the terminal has received and unloaded 251 LNG vessels or 16.65mn metric tons of LNG. It has supplied 17.88bn m3 of regasified LNG and 4mn mt of LNG via tankers to downstream customers in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and Shandong.
Sinopec late last year expanded the terminal's regasification capacity from 15mn to 45mn m3/day under a second stage of development. Once this stage is complete, LNG import capacity will reach 10.8mn mt/yr.
