South Korea’s Kogas said Monday that it started the commissioning process of three liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks at its Samcheok receiving terminal located some 290 kilometers east of Seoul. 

The first of the three 270,000-cbm Samcheok LNG storage tanks is expected to enter into commercial operations in May, Kogas said in its statement.

The commissioning process takes about two months for one LNG tank.

The construction of the Samcheok terminal that will have a total storage capacity of 2.6 million cubic meters of LNG in twelve storage tanks began in 2010. It currently has nine 200,000-cbm storage tanks in operation.

Kogas, the world’s second-largest corporate LNG importer, said it operates in total 71 LNG storage tanks in South Korea and overseas.

The company imports approximately 96 percent of Korea’s LNG demand via its four LNG terminals, namely Incheon, Pyeongtaek, Tongyeong, and Samcheok.
