Sinopec starts up commercial ops at Tianjin LNG terminal

China’s Sinopec received the first commercial cargo at its Tianjin liquefied natural gas (LNG) delivered onboard the CESI Qingdao LNG carrier.

The vessel with the capacity to transport 174,100 cubic meters of the chilled fuel delivered a cargo from the Australia Pacific LNG facility on Curtis Island off Gladstone, Australia, operated by ConocoPhillips.

The vessel is one of six of LNG carriers being built to deliver Australian liquefied natural gas to China for Sinopec.

With the delivery of the cargo, Sinopec noted that the terminal has been placed in commercial operation. The facility is capable of handling 3 million tons of liquefied natural gas per year, equivalent to 4 billion cubic meters of natural gas.

The quantities are enough to meet the demand of 22 million households, “effectively relieving the tight natural gas supply in Beijing, Tianjin, Shandong and Shandong areas,” Sinopec’s statement reads.

The company has focused on its LNG projects in recent years, developing three import terminals in Qingdao, Beihai and Tianjin with a total import and handling capacity of 9 million tons of the chilled fuel.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
