The Tai’an plant will be China’s largest onshore LNG liquefaction plant using domestically produced technical equipment and technology. The plant is expected to cost US$ 237 million. Ultimately once China has developed the necessary technological know-how, it will be able to build much larger plants.
China is increasing its usage of LNG as the fuel produces much less emissions and pollution than conventional fuels such as coal which the country currently relies upon to keep up with electricity demand.
China is exploiting the use of small-scale LNG plants to fill the gaps where extensive pipeline networks do not exist. LNG from these plants is then delivered by road to industrial sites and consumers.
