COSCO SHIPPING Energy, as the leader of China's LNG transportation business, actively implements the mission of "the fleet of a great power". Its affiliated COSCO SHIPPING LNG Investment (Shanghai) fully promotes the implementation of the national policy of "stability and guarantees in six key areas". In the face of severe and complex epidemic situations, it focuses on customer needs, constantly improves transportation service capabilities, and provides customers with safe, efficient and convenient transportation service guarantee.
During the May Day holiday, Ship "China Energy Lianyungang", loaded with 170,000 cubic meters of LNG from Australia, berthed at Tianjin Nangang LNG Terminal as planned. Due to the impact of the epidemic, seasonal changes, and small and long holidays, the domestic demand for natural gas increased. In order to ensure the supply of natural gas in North China, COSCO SHIPPING LNG Investment (Shanghai) gave full play to its own advantages, and actively coordinated and cooperated with Sinopec terminal, customs, border defense, maritime, operation terminal, Port and Waterway Administration and other port and shipping units and realized that the ships can arrive directly and be unloaded and docked directly, and the cargo can be unloaded and unberth continuously for 15 hours, ensuring the smooth transportation of clean energy during the epidemic period, and efficiently implementing the transportation of energy and gas conservation during the festival. This is also the 15th time that the "China Energy Lianyungang" has safely reached port in Tianjin since its maiden voyage in July 2018, which has played a positive role in helping to maintain gas and stabilize the chain in North China. At the same time, the Party committee of the Energy company attached great importance to the crew shift change and epidemic prevention work of the ship, and made timely deployment. The leaders in charge led the establishment of a special working group to guide Ship"China Energy Lianyungang" to implement the requirements of epidemic prevention and control headquarters, Health Commission and other epidemic prevention units in Binhai New Area, do a good job in non-contact inspection, dismantling and connecting pipelines, and complete the shift change tasks of 7 crew members on board and 18 crew members on public holidays (including the crew members of sister ships), laying a solid foundation for better provision of clean energy transportation services.
In order to improve the transportation efficiency during the epidemic period, COSCO SHIPPING LNG Investment (Shanghai) actively formulated personalized transportation solutions for customers, seized the "window period", and arranged Ship "China Energy Beihai" to complete the first night voyage of LNG ships in Shenzhen Yuedong LNG terminal in early March. Although there were more safety risks in the night inbound and outbound navigation, Shanghai LNG was determined, faced the difficulties and met the challenges, coordinated all parties of the project to actively cooperate with the maritime safety administration and relevant port and shipping units, fully learned from the experience of Tianjin LNG's first night navigation, carried out a series of feasibility and safety risk assessments of night navigation, actively dealt with adverse factors such as poor light conditions at night, and implemented pilotage operations, tugboat operations The dock loading and unloading operation and safety and emergency guarantee have once again successfully accumulated practical experience for the night navigation of ships, greatly shortened the time of ships in port, greatly increased the flexibility of dock shipping schedule, greatly improved the utilization rate of dock berths and emergency supply capacity, and provided a more powerful support for the natural gas supply in South China.
From January to April this year, LNG ships of the Energy company have completed 191 transports, with a total of 32.2289 million cubic meters, 13.792 million tons, and a turnover of 45.327 billion tons of nautical miles, which has accelerated the domestic gas stability chain.
