GUANGZHOU (ICIS)--China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) plans to build floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, China’s first, in the northern municipality of Tianjin, C1 Energy reported on Wednesday.

The terminal would supply gas to Tianjin and its surrounding areas including Beijing, C1 Energy quoted a local government official as saying.

C1 Energy is an ICIS service in China.

The project is undergoing a feasibility study, C1 Energy reported, adding that the capacity of the terminal and its timeframe for construction had not been decided.

CNOOC is also planning to build an onshore LNG terminal in the same city, which will be capable of receiving about 3m tonnes/year of Qatari gas, the report said.

CNOOC operates three other LNG terminals in China, consisting of a 3.7m tonne/year terminal at Shenzhen in Guangdong province, a 2.6m tonne/year terminal at Putian in Fujian province and a 3m tonne/year terminal in Shanghai.
