Just seen email saying:
A terminal at the Soko Islands is thus superseded by advances in technology.
Storage provision can be made elsewhere.
(*This was reported in the Nov/Dec, edition of the Energy Institute’s magazine Energy World – citing actions to supply UK’s needs)
Just googled, quickly.
From BBC news:
The company says this avoids the need to build a terminal on land.
More info, especially on the vessel, includes:
On arrival at GasPort, LNGRVs will utilise a shore-mounted, high-pressure gas arm to connect the vessel’s midships manifold with the shore pipeline.
A small aboveground station at the site enables pressure control, metering and nitrogen blending to be carried out.
Naturally, we can anticipate some reasons why this just isn’t possible out here.
CLP/Exxon nearly have their hands on all the extra money they can make via terminal in HK, so not about to let from their grasp just now I think.
