Background

In May 2019 Cambodia Natural Gas Corp. (CNGC) received government permission to proceed with a three-phase natural gas project in Phnom Penh. In the first phase, from 2019 to 2020, CNGC plans to import LNG by containers via maritime transportation. In the second phase that is targeted to be achieved in 2021-2023, CNGC plans to construct a gas power generation facility and supply gas to the facility using a chartered floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) with 0.55 mtpa capacity. In the third phase CNGC aims to construct an import terminal with 3 mtpa capacity in 2024-2029.[1]

In January 2020, Cambodia imported LNG in ISO tanks from China. However, S&P Global reported that its plans to charter an FSRU and build and import terminal were temporarily delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[2]

In July 2021, CNGC unveiled a more detailed plan for the facility including 27 urban LNG multi-function stations, a fleet of LNG trucks, and 2,825 kilometres of inter-provincial high-pressure pipelines.[3] CNOOC Gas & Power, China's largest natural gas developer, was reportedly considering taking a stake in the terminal.[4]
