In July 2018 China Huadian and Guanghui Energy agreed to build an LNG receiving and storage terminal in Yueyang city on the Yangtze River, 830 km inland from Shanghai and the East China Sea. The Yueyang LNG terminal will be developed in three phases in a project that will cost a total of US$294M. The facility will have the ability to handle 0.5M tonnes per annum (mta) of LNG in the first construction phase, rising to 1 mta in the second phase and 2 mta in the third. The first phase is scheduled to commence operations in December 2020.[3] In May 2019 it was reported that China Huadian had withdrawn from the project.[4]

The subproject of this LNG terminal, the filling station, began the construction in October 2020.[5] The sponsor company was Yueyang LNG Co., Ltd, a Yueyang city government owned company. Guanghui Energy does not own equity of the company, suggesting it may no longer involve in the project.[6] It was reported Hubei Energy Group showed interested in this project.[4][7]
