China’s National Development and Reform Commission has approved Sinopec’s planned Longkou LNG terminal at Yantai Port in Shandong Province, China.
The terminal will cover an area of 84.5 ha. Sinopec will construct four 220,000 m3 storage tanks, and a berth capable of handling ships with a capacity of up to 266,000 m3 of LNG. The terminal will have a transfer capacity of 6 million tpa and gasification export facilities with a capacity of 34 million m3 per day.
Sinopec already operates LNG terminals in Shandong, which it announced it was expanding in August 2021, and in Tianjin, which is also undergoing expansion works. The company is also building a 15m t/y LNG terminal in Zhoushan, China.
