Construction of 5 super-sized LNG storage tanks completed in S China
The construction of five super-sized liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks was completed on Monday in south China's Guangdong Province. With domestically developed core technologies, the project adopts the world's largest LNG storage tank designs, each of which can hold 270,000 cubic meters. The height of each tank is 65.7 meters, equivalent to the height of the National Stadium in Beijing. The Jinwan "Green Energy Port" project faced challenging geological conditions and required a complex anti-seismic design. The five super-sized LNG storage tanks are expected to be put into use in 2024, when the facility will become the largest natural gas storage and transportation base in south China. The annual processing capacity will reach seven million tonnes of liquefied natural gas, equivalent to about 10 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
