- China Unveils Plan to Build 11 New LNG Terminals in Northern Ports
China has unveiled a plan to build 11 new liquefied natural gas terminals in five ports in the north to boost their capacity to handle imports as the government steps up a push to increase domestic use of the cleaner-burning fuel to reduce air pollution.
The new LNG berths will be built at the ports of Dalian, Tangshan, Tianjin, Qingdao and Yantai, all in the Bohai Rim region of northern China, bringing the total number of LNG terminals in these cities to 16, according to the plan announced Friday by the Ministry of Transportation.
The government will also conduct studies on constructing more LNG terminals in other ports in Liaoning Province in the northeast, Hebei in the north and Shandong in the east, the ministry said.
