New LNG terminal opens in Zhejiang

The Liquefied Natural Gas terminal funded by ENN Group, a Chinese private energy company, began operations with Friday’s arrival of a ship loaded with 69,000 tons of LNG from Australia.

The terminal is in the city of Zhoushan, which houses the China (Zhejiang) Pilot Free Trade Zone. Its operations testify to the great potential in the fields of oil and gas trade both at home and abroad for private companies.

ENN Group has invested nearly 7.7 billion yuan (US$1.1 billion) in the terminal project in Zhoushan, east China’s Zhejiang Province.

The company also signed purchase contracts involving about 1.75 million tons of LNG annually, according to Ma Shenyuan, the company’s senior vice president.

Given the increasing global demand for energy and great changes in the energy structure, more and more Chinese private enterprises are entering the global oil and gas market, said Xu Xiaoyue, vice mayor of Zhoushan.

The private sector has gradually become a major actor in the domestic and global oil trading industry, contributing to innovation and development in management of crude trading as well as ensuring the stable supply of domestic crude oil, Li Chenggang, assistant commerce minister, told the International Petroleum and Natural Gas Enterprises Conference in Zhoushan.

An environment-friendly petrochemical base, with an investment of 173 billion yuan from Zhejiang Petrochemical Co Ltd, a mixed-ownership venture, is under construction in Zhoushan.
