New Gas Facility Completed Adjacent to FEEC’s Gas Sales Compressor Station

The construction of a large scale gas consuming facility adjacent to FEEC’s final compressor station has now been completed and put into operation. The complex comprises a combined cycle power plant, and an LNG plant, designed to use CBM as a gas supply. Additionally, the complex can also supply vehicles with CNG.

The power plant is the largest peak load provider in Shanxi Province and was completed in just under two years, highlighting Shanxi Province’s commitment to improving its environment by utilizing more natural gas and less coal in its energy mix. The facility has the ability to consume up to 35.31 billion cubic feet (1 Billion cubic meters) of natural gas per year, ensuring a strong future demand for CBM gas in the Shouyang area. Gas from FEEC’s Shouyang project is already being dispatched to this new facility.
