Sinopec gas unit caps Tianjin, Qingdao terminal LNG prices

BEIJING,  (Reuters) - Sinopec will put a ceiling on its factory gate liquefied natural gas (LNG) prices to keep charges stable during China’s winter heating season, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

Sinopec’s gas unit said factory gate LNG prices from its Tianjin and Qingdao terminals will not exceed the maximum factory gate prices in December 2018.

The highest price from Sinopec’s Tianjin terminal was 5,330 yuan per tonne ($15 mmBtu) in December, while the factory gate price from the Dongjiakou terminal in Qingdao was 5,400 yuan per tonne ($15.3 mmbtu), according to data from consultancy Zibo Longzhong Information Group.

The winter heating season, when demand for LNG and coal in northern China often surges, runs from mid-November until mid-March. (Reporting by Meng Meng and Dominique Patton; editing by Richard Pullin)

Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
-Shem Oirere
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.

GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
