Far East Energy Corporation, operator of the Shouyang coal bed methane (CBM) Production Sharing Contract (PSC) in Shanxi Province, China, has completed the onsite gas facility.
The construction of a large scale gas consuming facility, adjacent to Far East Energy’s final compressor station, has now been completed and put into operation. The complex comprises a combined cycle power plant, and an LNG plant designed to use CBM as a gas supply. Additionally, the complex can also supply vehicles with CNG.
The power plant is the largest peak load provider in Shanxi Province and was completed in just under two years, highlighting Shanxi Province's commitment to improving its environment by using more natural gas and less coal in its energy mix.
The facility has the ability to consume up to 1 billion m3 of natural gas per year, ensuring a strong future demand for CBM gas in the Shouyang area. Gas from Far East Energy's Shouyang project is already being sent to this new facility.
