Background

Shenzhen LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Guangdong, China.[2]

Originally proposed in 2009 and intended to supply Hong Kong and Guangdong with LNG, the Shenzhen LNG Terminal faced obstacles in 2014 over environmental concerns brought forth by activists who were concerned about the nearby plant's environmental impacts.[3][4] [5] In 2015 the project was scaled back due to these environmental concerns and proposed to only build four, 200,000 cubic meter tanks over two phases of construction.[2] As of 2016, the terminal was still not built, and a revised proposal to move the project to eastern Shenzhen is still pending.[6]

In June 2019 it was reported that a 3.0 mtpa terminal is under construction by CNPC, CLP, and Shenzhen Gas.[7] The scheduled completion date is 2022.[7] The project is to support and coordinate with the West-East Gas Pipeline 2.[8]
