In the morning of July 26, Fujian LNG terminal received its first cargo from Indonesia's Tangguh gas field, marking that the 25-year LNG supply contract on Fujian LNG project phase I has entered into a substantial stage.

20 days ago, Indonesia's Tangguh LNG project was officially put into operation, and "Min Rong", an LNG tanker built by China, departed Tangguh for Fujian with the first shipment of LNG. After gasification, part of the gas will be supplied to gas-fired power plants in Putian, Jinjiang and Xiamen via gas transmission trunk lines, and the rest will be sent to enterprises and residents in 5 big cities in Fujian Province including Fuzhou, Putian, Quanzhou, Xiamen and Zhangzhou.

The construction and operation of Fujian LNG terminal plays a significant role in improving the energy mix in Fujian Province, building a diversified energy supply system for the quality and rapid development of the local economy.

Fujian LNG project phase I will receive 2.6 million tons of LNG each year from Tangguh. By 2011, the new storage tanks No.3 and No.4 will be put into use, and the annual receiving capacity of Fujian LNG terminal will be doubled to 5.2 million tons.
