ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF HSIN-TA LNG TERMINAL IN TAIWAN

Shih-sheng Paul Lai, Cheng-shiun Lee

Abstract


Since 1984 Hsin-Ta LNG Terminal has been under construction for the purpose of importing liquefied natural gas because of increasing demand and possible depletion of natural gas in Taiwan. Several alternatives were taken into account during the feasibility study. The Terminal is built with only a southern breakwater due to its good natural coastal conditions. Each construction item has been coordinated closely in order to advance the schedule. The first phase of land reclamation was finished by 1986. Three tanks have been under construction since soil improvement was finished. The entire project will be completed in 1989.
