Pipeline news successful commissioning of Tianjin LNG external transmission pipeline
In recent days, the national pipeline network Group’s Tianjin LNG external transmission pipeline has achieved successful operation, establishing connectivity with multiple natural gas main pipelines such as the Sino-Russian eastern route, the Shanxi-Beijing pipeline, and the Inner Mongolia-Xinjiang pipeline. This accomplishment adds a crucial external transmission channel to the Tianjin LNG receiving station.
The Tianjin LNG external transmission pipeline is a key component of the national pipeline network Group’s Tianjin LNG receiving station Phase II, which is a pivotal project in the national natural gas infrastructure interconnection. With a designed annual gas transmission capacity of 30 billion cubic meters, this pipeline spans 16.94 kilometers, linking the Tianjin LNG receiving station to the main pipeline network. It holds significant importance in optimizing the regional energy structure and improving the atmospheric environment.
In addition to the external transmission pipeline, three sets of external gasification equipment and a 220,000 cubic meter large LNG storage tank have also been commissioned. This upgrade enhances the Tianjin LNG gasification capacity to 29 million cubic meters per day and increases the storage capacity to 420 million cubic meters.
The Tianjin LNG receiving station is currently the largest LNG receiving station in terms of land area in China and the largest liquid external transmission base in the north China region. Since its commissioning, it has transmitted over 35 billion cubic meters of natural gas. The phase II project is a vital civil project and energy supply guarantee project in the construction of the national “production, supply, storage, and sales” system. The overall plan includes six 220,000 cubic meter LNG storage tanks and their supporting facilities, with the entire project scheduled for completion by 2024.
Upon full commissioning of the phase II project, the total storage capacity of the station will increase to 960 million cubic meters, generating 85 billion kWh of electricity annually and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 75.28 million tons each year.
Haihao Group proudly contributed to this project by supplying a portion of the pipeline products, further solidifying its position as a leading expert in the field of pipeline systems.
