Jereh Group has successfully finished China's first shale gas liquefaction plant in Sichuan.
At this phase, the plant will produce 2 470 000 ft3/d of LNG, while the second phase with capability up to 10 590 000 ft3/d will start construction this month and create 30 direct jobs.
The plant is located at Junlian County in Sichuan Province, the shale gas play area in China, covering an area of 718 000 ft2. In 2014, the shale gas production in Junlian was 3 530 000 ft3/d. Apart from the local demand of 423 800 ft3, the remaining gas needs to be liquefied for economic returns.
“Jereh [took] only six months to bring the liquefied shale gas into reality, cutting the usual period by half. Its success showcases China's shale gas commercialisation and Jereh's outstanding EPC capability for natural gas piping design, process selection and onsite construction," said the government office.
"We believe this project will drive Jereh to step out for more LNG projects worldwide. Jereh modularised [the] mini LNG project with production size from 200 000 to 11 200 000 ft3/d, [which] ensures onsite quick construction and better cost advantage," explained Mr. Yang Zhiguo, Jereh General Manager.
"For example, In Southeast Asia, the LNG development focuses on small, mid scale LNG projects especially in Indonesia as it has small untapped stranded gas resources. Transmission infrastructure or LNG liquefaction projects to ship the gas to regasification terminals will be an expansion."
