In 2019, the Yantai Port Group announced it would be building a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal by 2022, which would have a total capacity of 11.5 million tonnes. The first phase of the import terminal (5 million tonnes) will cost $1.1 billion.[3]

In 2021, Yantai Port was in the midst of adding 7.4 million barrels of crude oil storage capacity (scheduled to be completed in by the 2020) due to Shandong Province's shift towards increasing oil infrastructure and usage as an alternative to coal.[4]
