PipeChina, China’s state-owned National Oil and Gas Pipeline Group is now offering third party access to spare capacity at its LNG terminals, natural gas pipeline network and storage facilities, and access to its crude oil and refined product pipelines.

Firms wishing to access PipeChina’s facilities must register as a shipper before 20 October. PipeChina has published many of the associated tariffs for access in November and December 2020. Third party access is being offered as part of efforts to improve operational transparency.

PipeChina has eight LNG import terminals, of which six are operational and two are under construction, including the 20m t/y Longkou Nanshan LNG terminal in Yantai City, Shandong Province, China. Argus Media reports that it will eventually control ten terminals.
