01.24.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

January 24, 2024 [LNG Prime]- China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) has completed hydro testing of all of the six giant LNG storage tanks at its Binhai LNG import terminal in Jiangsu.

 

The state-owned energy giant is building the 270,000 cbm tanks under the Phase I expansion project of its “Yancheng Green Energy Port”.

These are world’s largest onshore LNG storage tanks, such as the operational tank at Sinopec’s Qingdao LNG import terminal and the five tanks at CNOOC’s Zhuhai LNG import terminal.

The six tanks at CNOOC’s LNG terminal located in Yancheng Binhai Port Industrial Park add to the already four existing tanks with a capacity of 220,000 cbm.

In September last year, CNOOC completed raising the roofs on all of the six 270,000 cbm LNG storage tanks and in October the firm hydrotested one of the tanks.

On January 20, 2024, the company completed hydro testing of all of the six LNG storage tanks, 71 days earlier than the original plan, according to a statement by CNOOC Gas & Power said.

This procedure, also known as hydrostatic testing, ensures LNG tank safety and reliability.

The successful completion of the tests lays a solid foundation for the mechanical completion of the entire project on schedule, CNOOC’s unit said.

In August last year, CNOOC received the 30th cargo of LNG at its Jiangsu-Binhai LNG import terminal since September 2022.

The LNG terminal received its 15th cargo in May, while LNG producer Qatargas, now QatarEnergy LNG, delivered the first LNG cargo on September 26, 2022.

The terminal currently has a nominal capacity of three million tonnes of LNG per annum and can receive vessels with a capacity of between 80,000 cubic meters and 266,000 cubic meters.
