Visit to the Guangdong Dapeng LNG Terminal

February 1, 2014 in Visit

The EMAHK is organizing a series of events on exploring alternative fuel for vehicle transportation in Hong Kong. To start with, a 1-day trip to the Dapeng Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal is organized on 22nd February 2014.

Natural gas forms liquid at a very low temperature (-163°C) and occupies less space than in gaseous phase, making it more cost-effective to transport. During the liquefying process, impurities are removed from natural gas and thus using LNG as fuel can also help improve regional air quality.

In the trip, participants will visit two different LNG refueling stations in Nanshan area and the Guangdong Dapeng LNG Terminal. This Terminal is China’s first pilot project for importing LNG. It comprises a total land area of 49 hectares. The main facilities of the terminal includes three 160,000M3 LNG storage tanks, a berth capable of accommodating 217,000M3 LNG carriers, nine sets of LNG vaporizers, four sets of NG metering stations, an automatic central control system, fire control systems, public utility and other auxiliary facilities. It is a large energy infrastructure project in Pearl River Delta. The completion of the project has supported the rapid development of economy in the delta. It has also reframed the local energy structure and improved environmental pollution of the region. The Terminal supplies Hongkong Electric and Towngas via an underwater pipe.
