China, with its planned and announced (new-build) terminals, is set to drive most of the liquids storage capacity growth in Asia and Oceania. The country is expected to account for 59% of the regions’ total capacity growth between 2019 and 2023, says GlobalData, a leading data, and analytics company.

The Zhanjiang IV terminal, which is expected to start operations in 2022, will have the highest liquids storage capacity among all the terminals with 7.0 mmcm.”
Following China, GlobalData identifies Indonesia as the second highest contributor to the liquids storage capacity growth in Asia and Oceania with a new-build capacity of 6.1 mmcm by 2023. Of the total capacity, 4.5 mmcm is likely to come from early-stage announced projects and the rest is from planned terminals.
India is the third-highest contributor to the liquids storage capacity growth in Asia and Oceania. The country is expected to witness start of operations of 18 planned and announced liquids storage terminals by 2023 with a total capacity of 3.3 mmcm. Mandvi will have the highest liquids storage capacity of 0.8 mmcm. It is expected to start operations in 2022.
