Dalian LNG Terminal is an LNG terminal in Liaoning, China.[2]

Operational since 2011, Dalian’s LNG sources are mainly from Qatar, Australia and Iran and after regasification is sent for use in northeastern China.[3] In late 2016, PetroChina began testing a new storage tank which could double its receiving capacity to 6 million tonnes per year.[4]

In March 2018 it was reported that the terminal's capacity is now 10 mtpa.[5]

In Dec 2020, PipeChina took over the 75% shares of Dalian LNG Terminal which was originally belonging to CNPC, becoming the major shareholder of it.[6]

Ownership change

In February 9, 2019, the National Petroleum and Natural Gas Pipeline Group Co., Ltd. (PipeChina) was established with a major focus on the investment and construction of the long-distance oil and gas pipeline network and storage & peaking facilities, offering fair and open oil and gas pipeline transmission services. [7]10 existing and under-construction LNG terminals were reportedly transferred or are going to transfer their ownerships to PipeChina.[8] Longkou LNG terminal is one of them.
