Hong Kong LNG Terminal, a joint venture between Hong Kong power utilities HK Electric and Castle Peak Power, is ready to start operation of Hong Kong’s first liquefied natural gas project, featuring deployment of the world’s largest floating storage and regasification unit in mid-2023.

The pandemic outbreak in Hong Kong delayed first gas from March 2022 to June this year, according to sources.

Contractor Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC) is wrapping up construction of facilities including a double berth jacket-supported offshore jetty, a subsea pipeline linking the jetty with CLP Lamma Island-owned Lamma power station, and an onshore terminal at the power plant and a subsea pipeline linking the jetty with the Castle Peak Power-owned Black Point power station in the New Territories region of Hong Kong.
