SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jovo Group is expected to receive its first cargoes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in December into the company’s LNG transfer station at Dongguan in Guangdong province, south China, a company source said on Thursday.

The transfer station is designed to handle 1m tonnes/year of LNG shipments and trial operations at the storage tanks have been completed in June this year, the source said.

“We are expecting two LNG cargoes to arrive in December,” the source added.

The cargoes are expected to carry about 10,000 tonnes of LNG each, which may be transferred from PetroChina’s Dalian LNG terminal in northeast China’s Liaoning province, by vessels rented from a Norway-based shipping company, industry sources said.

However, the company gave no detailed information on the supplier of the cargoes.

The LNG cargoes will be mainly supplied to Jovo subsidiaries, and may also be distributed via truck delivery, the sources added.

China has another operational LNG transfer station in Shanghai municipality, with a designed capacity of about 1m tonnes/year.
