TGE Gas Engineering wins EPC contract for Shenzhen LNG project
Natural gas distribution company Shenzhen Gas Corporation has awarded LNG storage contractor TGE Gas Engineering with an EPC contract for the Shenzhen LNG Storage and Peak Shaving II expansion project in China.
TGE will perform this project in a consortium with CIMC Enric Engineering Technology (CET) and China Construction Second Engineering Bureau (CSCEC).
According to TGE, the project includes 2 x 160,000 m3 full containment LNG storage tanks, the process plant and a new loading/unloading berth for LNG vessels with storage capacities from 3,000 to 217,000 m3. The extended plant is expected to have a 2 MTA send-out capacity of LNG.
“We want to thank all our colleagues who put all their effort into the bidding phase, our consortium partners for their efficient and good cooperation and our customer for their trust placed in us! We will keep you updated on the project’s progress,” TGE said.
In 2020, together with Yantian Port Group and PetroChina, Shenzhen Gas announced that China will build its first LNG bunkering center for international vessels in the city of Shenzhen.
The project aims to attract more international LNG-fuelled vessels to berth at Chinese ports as well as to develop green shipping in the country as part of efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
