CNOOC to build 6 storage tanks in Tianjin LNG terminal expansion
CNOOC will start building six liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks by the end of the year as part of a project to expand its Tianjin LNG terminal to help meet surging demand from households in northern China, CNOOC Gas and Power Group said in statement.
The project, including six tanks each with 220,000 cubic metres of storage capacity, 12 gasification units and 12 high pressure pumps, has been approved by CNOOC’s board members, the company said.
The new facilities are expected to start operating in 2022.
CNOOC’s Tianjin terminal is expected to have 7.25 million tonnes of annual LNG processing capacity by 2030, up for 3.21 million tonnes in 2018.

According to GIIGNL’s 2018 Annual Report, global LNG trade expanded by 3.5 Bft3d in 2018, to 38.2 Bft3d—a record 10% increase.
Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
