According to Reuters, PetroChina has started up new LNG storage tanks at two receiving terminals in preparation for winter demand.

Reuters reports that the company recently began operating a tank with a capacity of 200 000 m3 – in addition to pipelines and regasification facilities – in Rudong, eastern Jiangsu province, China.

These new facilities in Rudong are reportedly part of a second phase expansion project, which has increased the company’s handling capacity from 3.5 million tpy to 6.5 million tpy. Following the expansion, Rudong has a total of 680 000 m3 of storage capacity.

In addition to this, Reuters reports that PetroChina has started test running a new storage tank at its Dalian terminal. This is expected to double the facility’s receiving capacity to 6 million tpy.

The company reportedly said that it would increase its gas supply this winter by 7% compared to the year before. It said that it would do this by slightly increasing imports, as well as by pumping more from onshore domestic fields, such as Longwangmiao.
