BEIJING: China National Offshore Oil Corp’s Dapeng liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, located in Guangdong province, hit a milestone of supplying over 100 million tonnes of the chilled fuel since its launch in 2016.

It has further ensured domestic energy security while facilitating the country’s green energy transition, says industry analysts.

The facility, with a design capacity of 6.8 million tonnes per year, delivers natural gas through a 444-km pipeline to the cities of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Huizhou, Dongguan, Foshan and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, said the company.

It has become the country’s first LNG terminal with an accumulated LNG imports exceeding 100 million tonnes, or 140 billion cubic meters of natural gas, which can help reduce 350 million tonnes of carbon dioxide and 3.2 million tonnes of sulfur dioxide compared with the consumption of coal, it said.

An analyst said China has come up with a complete LNG engineering construction capability in recent years, ranging from liquefaction to regasification onshore and offshore. The Dapeng LNG terminal is expected to continue providing stable and clean power generation fuel to southern parts of China to increase the proportion of clean energy in the regions. — China Daily/ANN
