An LNG or liquefied natural gas vessel from Australia on Jan 13 berthed and unloaded its precious cargo at a terminal in Yangkou Port – in Rudong county administered by Nantong city in East China's Jiangsu province – to help meet the rising seasonal demand for the fuel.
Since the winter natural gas supply season started on Nov 15, the Jiangsu LNG terminal has received 16 vessels in total, unloading 1.34 million tons of LNG. Now in full swing, the complex is currently maintaining natural gas gasification output of 36 million cubic meters per day.
Critical to clean energy supplies in the Yangtze River Delta region, the terminal has unloaded more than 35 million tons of LNG from 25 countries and regions – including Australia, Qatar, the United States and the Yamal Peninsula in Russia – and exported over 49 billion cu m of natural gas, since it began operating in 2011.
The natural gas has met the residential gas demand of the entire Jiangsu province over the past decade and provided sufficient clean energy for the green development of the Yangtze River Delta region.
