This receiving terminal is the world’s first all-steel offshore building, capable of accommodating two of the world’s largest storage and regasification units mooring and operating simultaneously.
China National Offshore Oil Corporation announced on Monday that the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal has successfully achieved its first unloading operation, marking the start of the trial operation phase.
The two-berth offshore terminal, plus a land terminal and two offshore pipelines, belong to the Hong Kong LNG project.
This receiving terminal is the world’s first all-steel offshore building, capable of accommodating two of the world’s largest storage and regasification units for mooring and operation at the same time.
After the LNG is transported to the station, it can be transported to two large power plants in Hong Kong through offshore pipelines, providing them with stable and clean fuel for power generation, and also greatly increasing the proportion of clean energy in Hong Kong.
Since the start of construction in 2020, the project has successfully traversed complex sea areas such as the Longgu Canal and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge with heavy sea traffic, and completed the construction and installation of 28 individual buildings with a weight of 35,000 tons and 63 kilometers of offshore pipelines.
