PetroChina imports first LNG in container tanks

SINGAPORE, Nov 11 (Reuters) -

* PetroChina International has made its first import of liquefied natural gas carried in container tanks, an official government website said on Monday, a relatively new form of trade of the super-chilled natural gas

* The firm shipped in five LNG containers via a terminal in Shanghai in late October, the state-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission said in a report on its website, without specifying their source

* Standard LNG containers, sized typically at 17 to 18 tonnes, offer an additional way to carry the fuel, besides pipelines, tankers or trailers

* Top LNG importer China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC), has started a pilot program to ship imported container LNG via domestic rail
