GTT and Beijing Gas Group (BGG) have concluded an additional cooperation agreement relating to the Tianjin Nangang LNG terminal, which is currently in its first phase of construction. 

The new agreement mainly covers the collaboration for phases II and III of the terminal, which include the construction of six additional 220,000 m3 “latest generation” LNG storage tanks.

It was signed at a ceremony held on 3 March at the French Embassy in Beijing, with several key industry leaders and government officials in attendance.

Tian Zhenqing, chairman of the board of BEG, said: “We are glad to be part of this technological partnership between France and China, and proud to be the first in China to use this latest generation LNG storage tank.”

This agreement follows the first agreement, which was signed in November 2019 between GTT and Chinese state-owned BEG.

In June 2020, GTT received an order for the design of two 220,000 m3 membrane full containment tanks. Built as part of BGG’s Tianjin Nangang LNG terminal, they are the largest LNG tanks in China.

Philippe Berterottière, chairman and CEO of GTT, said: “We are very pleased to extend our partnership with BGG. This is proof that the membrane full containment technology meets BGG’s expectations in terms of technological performance, cost competitiveness and level of safety, whilst significantly reducing the company’s environmental impact.”
