CNOOC: LNG truck deliveries ease Northern China's gas shortages

China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) said that in order to cover the soaring gas demand in east and northern China, the company boosted LNG deliveries into the two regions. 

As the government ordered the switch from coal to natural gas use for heating this caused gas shortages which were alleviated by delivering liquefied natural gas from the south of the country to the north.

CNOOC said that in the period from December 9, 2017, to January 8, 2018, it delivered 5,266 tons of the chilled fuel from the Dapeng, Yuedong and Zhuai LNG terminals in 244 truck deliveries. The volumes are enough to meet the demand of 500,000 residents in the North.

The company added that over 100 LNG trucks will continue delivering the chilled fuel from the south to the north.

On December 4, the daily gas supply at the Tianjin LNG terminal exceeded 20 million tons for the first time and my March, it will have unloaded 21 LNG cargoes. The gas will be supplied to residential and industrial users in Tianjin as well as Beijing, Hebei and surrounding areas.

The Fujian LNG terminal reached its record unloading volumes in November 2017 with 350,000 tons, delivering 27.4 million cubic meters of gas to Jiangxi, Hunan via LNG trucks.

As of November 25, 2017, Zhejiang LNG terminal received 3 million tons of LNG, increasing by over 80 percent compared to the same period last year, achieving the design capacity for the first time.

In addition, CNOOC added over 3 million cubic meters of gas supply to Guangdong to replace the gas supply of PetroChina, while PetroChina delivered the replaced part to North China.
