Tangshan II is the largest upcoming project in the country with a capacity of 584.4 billion ft3 by 2025. Yantai I and Zhoushan III are the other major projects with capacities of 487 billion ft3and 340.9 billion ft3, respectively.

Of these, new-build capacity additions account for 1697 billion ft3 and expansion capacity additions account for 55 billion ft3 by 2025.
