10 years of operation of Thi Vai refrigerated LPG Storage: a proud mark of a "pioneer" work

After a decade of difficulties and challenges, the leaders and employees of Petrovietnam Gas Vungtau Processing Company (PV GAS VT) have made continued efforts to master and operate Thi Vai refrigerated LPG Storage, contributing to affirm the mission and leading position in the gas industry development of Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation (PV GAS). The 2023 year marks the 10-year milestone of Thi Vai refrigerated LPG Storage – a respectful and proud journey.

On April 21, 2009, the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group issued an approval decision on the investment project to build a refrigerated LPG storage facility, with a total capital of more than VND2.5 trillion and a capacity of 60,000 tons of refrigerated LPG. Three years after construction, on March 20, 2013, Thi Vai refrigerated LPG Storage was officially launched and handed over to PV GAS VT under the Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation. This was the first refrigerated LPG Storage in Vietnam, bringing pioneering significance as well as great socio-economic values to the country in general and Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province in particular.

If then the existing gas storage facilities in Vietnam were pressurized LPG storage, with a total capacity of 31,000 tons, the introduction of Thi Vai refrigerated LPG Storage marked a breakthrough milestone in terms of technology and capacity, in line with the world's trend, affirming a firm step in accordance with the outlined strategy of PV GAS.

With a 10- year journey of continued efforts, steady responsibility, proactive learning, active coordination, creativity and improvement, PV GAS VT has gained great achievements from Thi Vai Refrigerated LPG Storage. On February 10 in 2013, PV GAS VT successfully received the first more than 14,000 tons of refrigerated LPG from Maple 1 floating storage. On June 15 in 2017, PV GAS Vung Tau Terminal received the largest vessel Pacific Dongying with more than 47,500 tons. December in 2018 marked the milestone that the Refrigerated LPG Storage at PV GAS Vung Tau Terminal received the 100th refrigerated LPG ship, raising the total volume of imported goods through the Storage to 3.41 million tons of LPG. Until now, Thi Vai Refrigerated LPG Storage has experienced nearly 88,000 hours of safe operation, receiving 208 refrigerated LPG ships with 6.86 million tons of imported LPG, totaling 145 storage rotations. PV GAS Vung Tau Terminal System, including refrigerated LPG Storage, is currently involved in providing 60% of LPG consumption in Vietnam market.
