First-phase construction of the terminal will install receipt capacity of 3.5 million tonnes/year of LNG and is scheduled to start up in September 2013. Included are three LNG storage tanks of undisclosed capacities, a wharf, and 291 km of pipelines. Total investment will be about $1.7 billion.

The terminal will send out natural gas Guangzhou, Foshan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, and Jiangmen in the Pearl River Delta area.
