A tank container first for CIMC ENRIC

Tank container used to export LNG from Canada to China

Nantong CIMC Tank Equipment Co, Ltd., part of CIMC ENRIC Holdings Limited, has supplied a tank container for a pilot project to ship LNG from Vancouver, Canada, to China. 

The LNG was supplied by FortisBC from its Tilbury facility in Delta, while logistics and equipment were provided by True North Energy Corporation and CIMC ENRIC Holdings Limited.

"This pilot is a small, but significant step for B.C.'s LNG export industry," said Douglas Stout, vice-president of Market Development and External Relations, FortisBC. "At FortisBC, we are working toward changing the LNG landscape with the first of what could be many shipments from our province."

Earlier this year Pacific NorthWest LNG canceled plans to build an LNG export terminal in British Columbia, citing unfavourable overseas market conditions. Using tank containers could offer a viable way to get the trade established. “B.C.’s LNG industry has been steadily moving toward this goal and, in support of this, FortisBC has invested in expanding its Tilbury LNG storage facility and in innovative solutions to transport natural gas. True North has been exploring creative ways to bring Canadian natural gas to Asia and its market approach is key to this breakthrough,” the parties said in a statement

FortisBC has been liquefying natural gas at Tilbury since 1971, supplying the local market and, more recently, other markets including remote communities and heavy-duty vehicle fleets. “Through its world-first marine bunkering process, FortisBC can also transport LNG to fuel vessels along the West Coast. These innovations helped FortisBC develop the capability to carry out this first shipment of LNG from Canada to China,” the company added.

The trial shipment to was carried in one 40ft tank ISO container.
