China’s Sinopec Corporation has completed the first construction phase at its Tianjin LNG terminal with the addition of a third storage tank. 

The facility was put into operation in February with a capacity to handle 3 million tons of the chilled fuel which is equivalent to 4 billion cubic meters annual supply capacity.

During the year, the facility has already received 22 cargoes totaling 1.46 million tons of LNG.

The company delivered 1.46 billion cubic meters of gas via pipeline so far, adding that further 339,000 tons via trailer trucks. Tianjin LNG facility is connected to the Shandong natural gas pipeline network.

The addition of the third storage tank comes following the government’s call to the industry to boost storage capacity in order to cope with the upcoming winter demand.

Sinopec has two more terminals in operation, the Beihai LNG terminal and the Qingdao facility.
