Changfeng Energy Inc. has announced that a controlled subsidiary, Hebei Riheng Clean Energy Ltd., has been established in Shijiazhuang, Hebei, China to pursue the gas distribution and clean energy related projects in Hebei Province.
Due to the Central Chinese Government's energy reform policies that endeavor to phase out coal gas usage and transform China into a natural gas driven economy, the Hebei based factories and industry parks were forced to replace coal with natural gas. Moreover, some of the Hebei based factories were forced to move out of the cities to remote areas where pipeline gas is not accessible.
