FACTBOX-China's LNG import terminals and storage facilities

    SINGAPORE, Aug 16 (Reuters) - Chinese city-gas distributor Shenzhen Gas
 will launch next week in southern China its first fully-owned
terminal to import liquefied natural gas (LNG), a company executive told Reuters
on Friday. 
    This will make Shenzhen Gas the second city gas distributor backed by a
local government that owns an LNG import facility. The first was Shenergy Group,
which opened an LNG import terminal in Shanghai in 2008. 
    Most of the China's import terminals are owned by the dominant state-run oil
and gas companies like China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) and PetroChina
    The new facility, with a capacity of 800,000 tonnes a year, will take
China's total number of operating LNG terminals to 22. 
    CNOOC, parent of CNOOC Ltd, started China's first terminal in
2006, and accounts for nearly 60 percent of its total receiving capacity. 
    A handful of small private firms have in recent years stepped into the
sector, including city gas developer ENN Energy, Jovo Energy and
Guanghui Energy. The largest independent terminal, a 3 million
tonne-per-year facility in east China, was built by ENN and started up in
    Below are the details of terminals and storage tanks attached to China's LNG
terminals, according to China Petroleum and Petrochemical Engineering Institute
and industry sources. 
    A total of 9.34 million cubic metres of storage tanks are in operation at
these terminals, with another 4.94 million cubic metres under construction. 
    (Terminal capacity is in million tonnes per year; storage is given in the
number of tanks by tank size in 1,000 cubic metres. For instance, 4X160=four
tanks each sized 160,000 cubic metres.)
