CNOOC is the largest LNG importer in China. The company imported 13.01 million tons of liquefied natural gas last year, accounting for 72 percent of the country's total imports, according to CNOOC.

As a pioneer of China's liquefied natural gas industry and the third-largest LNG importer in the world, CNOOC operates six LNG receiving terminals in Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang, Shanghai and Tianjin with additional terminals under construction.
