On December 13, 2014, the Shangdong LNG terminal for which LPEC is an EPCC contractor received the first LNG ship and the LNG was loaded from the ship. This signifies that the LNG terminal was successfully commissioned and put into normal operation. The Shangdong LNG terminal, which is the first LNG terminal of SINOPEC, is also the first LNG terminal in China. The terminal project covers LNG jetty, process treatment facilities, light hydrocarbon recovery unit, loading facilities, light hydrocarbon LNG tank farm and flare system, etc. The operation of the LNG terminal will help to mitigate the tight supply of LNG in Shandong.
