Sinopec's Shandong LNG terminal expansion wins provincial approval

Sinopec’s plan to expand its liquefied natural gas terminal in east China’s Shandong province has won a green light from the provincial government, the state energy firm said.

The terminal, in the port city of Qingdao, will add two tanks each sized 160,000 cubic metres, and will thus have annual handling capacity of 7 million tonnes, the company said, without giving a timeline for the expansion.

Sinopec, a latecomer to the LNG business among state-run oil and gas firms, started operating the first phase of the Qingdao terminal at end-2014, with annual handling capacity of 3 million tonnes.

The expansion is estimated to cost 2.3 billion yuan ($337 million) and will take three years to build, local media reported late last year.

Sinopec operates two other terminals, one in Guangxi in the southwest and one in Tianjin, near Beijing.

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.
