China: Dalian LNG terminal

China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC) (Beijing) has begun construction on its Dalian LNG terminal to receive LNG from Australia and Qatar. The project is located in the heavy industrial region of NE China in Liaoning Province. CNPC plans to invest USD 1.43 billion to build a port, the terminal and pipelines. Phase I of the terminal will be designed to receive 3 million tons per year of LNG, supplying 4.2 billion cum of natural gas. Phase I will cost three-fourths of the total investment and is expected to begin operation in 2011. Phase II will double the capacity of LNG received and gas supplied. The terminal’s maximum capacity can reach 7.8 million tons of LNG and 10.5 billion cum of gas every year. The main gas pipeline will link Dalian and Shenyang cities, both in Liaoning. Total length of the lines will be 475km of which 86km will be used in two branches. The main line will connect to the planned Northeast China Gas Transmission Network, which transfers gas to homes and factories.
