China starts Huizhou LNG terminal construction

Asian LNG importer continues to expand its import infrastructure for the fuel

Chinese authorities have broken ground on another LNG receiving terminal, this time at Huizhou in the southern province of Guangdong, as the country’s gas imports continue to rise. The Huizhou terminal’s first RMB6.6bn ($1bn) phase will comprise 4mn t/yr of receiving capacity and up to 6.1mn t/yr of processing capacity, as well as three 200,000m3 storage tanks. The tanks are scheduled for completion by July 2022, and the first phase is to be operational by the end of 2023. The scheme’s second phase will add a further three storage tanks of 260,000m3 each and increase the facility’s maximum processing capacity to 10mn t/yr. Chinese authorities cite the development as “an important measure”
