China National Offshore Oil Co., Ltd. Fully Protects The Gas Shortage
Feb 09, 2018

February 5, "Bechia Anna" into the China National Offshore Oil Corporation Tianjin LNG (liquefied natural gas) terminal. The ship, carrying 69,000 tons of LNG, will be unloaded here to provide winter gas in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.


69,000 tons of liquefied natural gas equivalent to about 100 million cubic meters of natural gas. According to a household gas consumption of 30 cubic meters per month, these natural gas for about 1 million residents to use 3 months.


This scene is a microcosm of CNOOC Limited's efforts to shoulder its social responsibilities and to effectively ease the shortage of natural gas in North China.


Duocuobing deployment of resources simultaneously


"In the upstream procurement of resources, CNOOC plans layout in advance, before last winter spot prices soared through the long-term and spot LNG resources combined way for the winter Paul reserves of nearly 10 million tons of LNG spot resources in the downstream As early as last summer, CNOOC communicated with relevant departments and downstream users to find out the natural gas shortage situation and implemented the plan of ensuring gas supply and production scheduling accurately. "Yang Hua, chairman of CNOOC, said.


Faced with the tight natural gas supply in North China, CNOOC actively promoted the interconnection of natural gas pipelines in order to fully release the production capacity of Tianjin LNG, Guangdong LNG and offshore natural gas and ease the pressure on regional gas supply. Meanwhile, two major natural gas consumption growth zones, North China and East China, CNOOC Tianjin LNG receiving terminal and Zhejiang LNG receiving terminal have entered full capacity.


In addition, Tianjin Bin Da gas pipeline has been put into ventilation, which is CNOOC, China's oil pipeline for the first time interoperability, can effectively release North China's gas supply capacity. In the meantime, CNOOC has closely cooperated with PetroChina to complete the interconnection and interconnection between the pipe network of Guangdong Province and the West Second Line in southern China ahead of schedule, achieving the first "south to north" project. CNOOC also plans to arrange over 100 LNG tanker vehicles to carry LNG to North China from receiving stations located in Guangdong and assume the task of "carrying gas from the south to the north".


Up to now, CNOOC Limited has delivered more than 800,000 tons of liquefied natural gas to Beijing, Tianjin and the surrounding areas. It is estimated that 20 LNG carriers will be unloaded and unloaded by the end of March 2018, and the maximum daily gas supply (liquid and Gas) is expected to climb to 24 million cubic meters from 9 million cubic meters last year, an increase of 167% over the same period of last year.


LNG layout ahead of schedule


CNOOC is a pioneer and leader in China's LNG industry. At present, CNOOC has formed the upstream overseas LNG resource base construction, natural gas exploration and development, mid-ocean LNG carrier transoceanic transport, LNG receiving station construction, natural gas pipeline network construction, downstream natural gas power generation, automobile gasification, industrial gas, LNG cold Can use such a complete industrial chain.


In recent years, CNOOC has put into operation Dapeng LNG, Fujian LNG, Zhejiang LNG, Zhuhai LNG, Tianjin LNG and Hainan LNG8 receiving stations in succession with an annual loading and unloading capacity of 30 million tons. The number of LNG receiving stations and the handling capacity Ranked first in the country.


Figures show that by the end of 2017, CNOOC imported 120 million tons of LNG, which was estimated to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 300 million tons or equivalent to 800 million trees.


In the meantime, CNOOC also actively promoted the development of the natural gas power generation industry, built and owned 6 natural gas power generation enterprises, including Zhongshan Jiaming Power Plant and Putian Power Plant in Fujian Province, with a total installed capacity of over 8 million kilowatts. The installed capacity of natural gas is at the forefront of the domestic economy. As of the end of 2017, the Group Company has accumulated more than 160 GWh of power generation. According to a family of three monthly electricity 150 kWh calculation, which 160 billion kwh electricity available for nearly 100 million families a year.


Take the lead in mastering core technologies


In the field of LNG technology research and development, CNOOC took the lead in mastering key technologies such as large-scale LNG storage tanks. Three of them were pioneered internationally, six of them reached the international advanced level, and nine innovative technologies lead the industry. In particular, the successful research and development of LNG storage tank technology independently marks that China has completely broken the long-term monopoly of international engineering companies on large-scale LNG storage tank technology.


At present, CNOOC Ltd. is the only enterprise in China that fully masters the independent technical system of LNG receiving stations and can provide all-round solutions and engineering capabilities. The large-scale natural gas liquefaction technology the Company took the initiative to master makes our country the third country in the world to own this technology.


In the future, CNOOC will further accelerate the construction of Mengxi Natural Gas Pipeline Project. Data show that Mengxi project pipeline will cross Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Hebei and Tianjin 4 provinces and autonomous regions, a total length of about 1279 kilometers. After the completion of the project, it will supply natural gas from coal produced in Erdos and Datong region and natural gas from CNOOC Tianjin LNG receiving terminal to Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and Xiong'an New Zone to further enhance the supply of clean energy in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
