Sinopec’s Guangxi LNG terminal begins commercial ops

Sinopec’s Beihai LNG import terminal in China’s Guangxi region has officially started commercial operations, the state energy giant said on Tuesday.

The 3 mtpa facility received its first commercial cargo from the ConocoPhillips-operated Australia Pacific LNG project in Australia. The cargo was delivered onboard the 160,000 cbm Methane Spirit LNG carrier, Sinopec said.

This is Sinopec’s second LNG import project and the first LNG facility in the Guangxi region. The company started construction on the LNG project in 2013 with 17.78 billion yuan ($2.8 bln) of first phase investment.

Guangxi LNG plant received the commissioning cargo from the APLNG project at the end of March onboard the BW Pavilion Vanda LNG carrier.

Sinopec has a 7.6 mtpa long-term contract with APLNG that shipped its first cargo of chilled gas in January this year. Chinese oil and gas giant also owns a 25 percent stake in the Australian LNG project.
