CNPC: Ansai LNG Project Goes on Stream (China)
On August 19, CNPC’s LNG project in Ansai County of Shaanxi Province produced qualified LNG in one trial, the company said in a statement.
The successful industrial application of the double mixed refrigerant (DMR) process independently developed by CNPC’s China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering Corporation (HQCEC) is the first of its kind regarding large scale gas liquefaction in China. CNPC Chairman Jiang Jiemin sent a letter of congratulation to extend his gratitude for the dedication and contribution of the project team.
On December 29, 2009, HQCEC got the EPC contract on the Ansai LNG project from CNPC affiliated Kunlun Energy Company Limited. During project implementation, HQCEC has formulated large and medium sized gas liquefaction technical packages, realized localization of primary materials, part of the equipment and the control system, and developed the DMR process with proprietary intellectual property rights.
The successful debut of Ansai LNG project not only indicates a major step forward of CNPC in relevant proprietary technology development, but will also facilitate the economic development of the local area.
