Jereh Group announced it has successfully finished the China's first shale gas liquefaction plant in Sichuan, China. At this phase, the plant will produce 2,470,000 cubic feet of LNG per day (2.47MMSCFD) and the second phase with capability up to 10,590,000 cf/d (10.59MMSCFD) will start construction in January, 2015 and create 30 direct jobs.
The plant is located at Junlian County in Sichuan Province, the shale gas play area in China, covering an area of 718,000 sq ft.
In 2014, the shale gas production in Junlian is 3,530,000 cf per day. Apart from the local demand of 423,800 cf, the rest need to be liquefied for economic returns. As the project contractor, Jereh offers an integrated solution from designing, engineering, to procurement and construction services (EPCM).
"Jereh takes 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," said the government office.
With years of R&D and manufacturing experience, Jereh is a worldwide leader in oil and gas exploration and production, esp. in shale gas. In 2013, Jereh released a new concept shale gas fracturing solution "Small Well Site, Great Frac Job" 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 cf per day ensures onsite quick construction and better cost advantage," said Mr. Yang Zhiguo, Jereh General Manager.
"For example, In Southeast Asia, the LNG development focuses on small, mid-scale LNG projects esp. in Indonesia 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."
