Shantou LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Guangdong, China.[1]

A binding agreement was signed in 2011 for Australia’s Icon Energy to supply China’s Shantou Sinogas Energy with LNG over 20 years beginning in 2016. SinoEnergy proposed a LNG terminal on Nan’ao Island with a receiving capacity of 3 mtpa.[2] Both parties have extended the completion deadline for a gas sales agreement between the two companies until June 2018.[3]

In 2011, China Guodian ( it was merged into National Energy Group in 2017) was interested in building an LNG terminal in Shantou. The project's name was Nan'ao LNG terminal (南澳LNG接收站).[4]

In 2015, the government of Haojiang District, Shantou and China Huadian Group Clean Energy Co signed binding agreement to jointly develop Shantou LNG terminal. The receiving capacity would be 1.5 mtpa. [5]

In 2016, the city government of Shantou signed investment agreement with Yudean Group (changed name to Guangdong Energy Group in 2019) and its partners to jointly invest and build Shantou LNG terminal. The proposed receiving capacity would be 3 mtpa, and the estimated investment would be 6.6 billion yuan ($ 1 billion).[6]

In 2018, it was reported the project was facing challenges on sea source usage. [7]

In 2021, Shantou Communication Bureau expressed the determination to accelerate the preliminary work of the Yudean Shantou LNG terminal project during the period of 14th Five-Year-Plan.[8]
