Black & Veatch has released a statement claiming that, alongside Chemtex, it has won a construction contract for a 1 million Nm3/d LNG plant in Shanxi Qixian, China.
The Managing Director, Oil and Gas, Asia – Rochman Goswami – said: “The Shanxi plant win allows Black & Veatch to continue contributing to this critical clean fuel sector in China.
“The Black & Veatch-Chemtex team has an unrivalled track record and we were able to customise our solution and deliver it to Shanxi Natural Gas Company within a shorter timeline and with a reduced cost.
“This is a compelling competitive advantage given the need for more LNG facilities throughout China. We will continue to enable developers to maximise their investments at a faster rate.”
The Black & Veatch and Chemtex team will deliver a technology package – which will include Black & Veatch’s PRICO® technology – as well as a basic engineering design package (BEDP), critical equipment supply and related services.
Sean Ma, the CEO of Chemtex China, said: “Coal and natural gas are the backbone of Shanxi’s economy. This project further unlocks the potential already within the province and helps deliver multiple benefits to its residents. As clean fuel alternatives continue to gain momentum, the expertise and technology that both Black & Veatch and Chemtex bring to the table helps China’s energy portfolio while supporting growth.”
