May 3, 2019 [Tank News International] – China’s Sinopec has begun sending natural gas imported from its Tianjin LNG terminal to the newly built Wen 23 underground gas storage in Puyang, northern Henan province.
According to S&P Global Platts, the 10.4-Bcm gas storage facility is one of several underground gas storage facilities due to start up in coming years to meet growing Chinese consumption.
The facility was rebuilt from an exhausted gas field and put into operations in March this year.
Apart from connecting to the Ordos-Anping-Cangzhou gas pipeline, the Wen 23 gas storage has also been connected to Sinopec’s Yulin-Jinan and Puyang-Kaifeng gas pipelines in northern China, Sinopec said.
Sinopec’s Tianjin LNG terminal, which started commercial operations in April 2018, has an annual transfer capacity of 3 million mt and is capable of supplying around 4 Bcm/year of gas to the Chinese market.
