Expansion Background

Phase II planned expansion could increase capacity to 5-6 mpta.[3] In August 2018 Sinopec received approval from the Shandong provincial government for a 2.3 billion yuan ($337 million) expansion that would increase the terminal's capacity to 7 mtpa, with an estimated completion date of 2021.[4]

The second phase of this LNG terminal was permitted and began construction in Oct 2018. The capacity of the two phases will reach 7 mtpa after the second phase is completed.[5]

In March 2020 the third phase of the expansion was approved by the Shandong Provincial Development and Reform Commission. It will add an additional 270,000 cubic meters storage tank to the terminal, which will be the biggest in the country. [6]
