The Hainan Shennan LNG Storage Facility is in Hainan, China.[2] The facility cost an estimated 850 million yuan (US$133.6 million), and can store up to 40,000 cubic metres of LNG. It also has a wharf with a receiving capacity of 10,000-20,000 cubic metres per day (0.5 mtpa) on LNG ships. The storage tanks will be used to receive LNG from CNPC’s two operating terminals, Rudong LNG Terminal and Dalian LNG Terminal, as well as Tangshan LNG Terminal and the proposed Shenzhen LNG Terminal.[3]

The facility received permit for construction from Hainan Government in May 2012. [4]The first phase with two 20,000 cubic metres storage tanks began operating in 2014.[5]

The Shennan LNG Storage Facility was planning to have second and third phases after the first phase completed, adding 160,000 cubic metres storage capacity to the facility.[6]. However, by March 2021, there is no sign of construction of the second and third phases on site. The expansion plan apparently has been abandoned.
