SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) is expected to start supplying liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its Ningbo LNG terminal in Zhejiang province in late October or early November, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company will begin LNG supply on truck delivery to consumers mainly in Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces and Shanghai municipality, after receiving its second commissioning cargo on 18-20 October, the source said.

LNG distribution through pipelines after re-gasification will follow soon, the source added.

CNOOC has been conducting trial runs at the Ningbo LNG terminal since late September after receiving its first cargo from Qatar.

The Ningbo LNG terminal is designed to handle 3m tonnes/year of imported LNG, and is equipped with three 160,000cbm storage tanks.

CNOOC, the largest LNG importer in China, operates other LNG terminals at three different locations – Shanghai, Fujian and Guangdong.
