October 12, 2023 [LNG Prime]- China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) has hydro tested one of the six giant LNG storage tanks at its Binhai LNG import terminal in Jiangsu.

 

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

These are the world’s largest LNG storage tanks, such as those five at CNOOC’s Zhuhai LNG import terminal in Guangdong, according to CNOOC.

The tanks add to the already four existing tanks with a capacity of 220,000 cbm at the LNG terminal located in Yancheng Binhai Port Industrial Park, forming the largest storage LNG base in China, the firm claims.

In September last year, CNOOC completed raising the roofs on all of the six 270,000-cbm LNG storage tanks.

CNOOC Gas & Power, a unit of CNOOC, said in a statement on Wednesday that the hydraulic test of Tank No. 9 was recently completed.

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

The successful completion of the test lays a solid foundation for the tank to achieve mechanical completion, CNOOC Gas & Power said.

CNOOC Gas & Power said it will now work to complete the tank wall plates and hydro testing of other five tanks.

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

The LNG terminal received its 15th cargo in May this year, while LNG producer Qatargas, a unit of QatarEnergy, 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.
