Recently, the main part of the dredging project of the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) Yancheng "green energy port" was completed. The project is contracted to build by First Harbor Consultants and co-constructed by Shanghai Dredging and Tianjin Dredging, and involves the dredging of the harbor's basin, the approach channel and the main channel.
As China's biggest liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage base under construction, the CNOOC Yancheng "green energy port" is located in the Costal Harbor Industrial Zone in Yancheng City of east China's Jiangsu Province. After completion, the harbor will have an annual LNG processing capacity of 6 million tons. As an important project in the construction, the dredging work is carried out in the basin of about 820,000 square meters, the 1168-meter-long approach channel, and the 3827-meter-long main channel with the work amount over 20,000,000 cubic meters.
Upon completion, the project can continuously provide LNG to the Yangtze River Delta region and even the whole east part of China, improve the proportion of regional clean energy, and be of great significance to improving the energy structure, protecting the environment, and accelerating the industrial transformation of the Yangtze River Economic Belt.
