Dalian: The Tianjin Shihua crude oil terminal expansion project has been suspended, according to a report released by the Ministry of Environmental Protection.
The expansion project of the crude oil terminal located at Nanjiang port area of Tianjin included one 300,000dwt berth with an annual handling capacity of 18m tons.
