Jereh Group has successfully finished China’s first shale gas liquefaction plant in Sichuan. At this phase, the plant will produce 2.47 million cubic feet of LNG per day and the second phase, which will provide daily capability of up to 10.59 million cubic feet, will start construction this month and create 30 direct jobs.
The plant is in Junlian County, China’s primary shale gas area, and covers an area of 718,000 square feet. In 2014, the shale gas production in Junlian was 3.53 million cubic feet per day. Apart from local demand of 423,800, the rest is liquefied for economic returns.
As project contractor, Jereh offers an integrated solution from designing, engineering, to procurement and construction services (EPCM).
The government office said, “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 commercialization and Jereh’s outstanding EPC capability for natural gas piping design, process selection and onsite construction.”
With years of R&D and manufacturing experience, Jereh, which is headquartered in Yantai, China, is a worldwide leader in oil and gas exploration and production, especially in shale gas. In 2013, Jereh released a new concept shale gas fracturing solution to improve working and cost efficiency in the limited area while protecting the local environment.
“We believe this project will drive Jereh to step out for more LNG projects worldwide. Jereh modularized Mini LNG project with production size from 200,000 to 11,200,000 cubic feet per day ensures on site quick construction and better cost advantage,” said Jereh’s general manager Yang Zhiguo. “For example, In South East Asia, the LNG development focuses on small, mid-scale LNG projects 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.”
