The vessel will be moored in the Nanjiang area of the Tianjiin port on Bohai Bay. The 2.2-million tonne/year Phase 1 will cost nearly $5.9 billion and, besides the FRSU, include storage and pipelines. An 11-mile, 40-in. gas pipeline will extend between Tianjin Nanjiang port and Lingang Economic Zone.

Phase 2 will consist of a 6-million tpy land terminal (OGJ, Apr. 1, 2013, p. 90).
