Chemtex China has won the Shanxi Qixian LNG Project
BEIJING, PR China (January 28, 2016) Chemtex, together with our technology partner, has won the Shanxi Qixian liquefied natural gas (LNG) 1 million NM3/day (Normal Cubic Meter per day) project through public bidding.
Proven cost and schedule advantages were critical for the developer, Shanxi Natural Gas Company, and the Chemtex-Black & Veatch team was also able to draw on experience from more than 23 LNG plants completed in China.
The project will utilize Black & Veatch patented PRICO® technology. Chemtex will provide the Process Design Package (PDP), Basic Engineering Design Package (BEDP), Critical equipment supply and related services.
“Coal and natural gas are the backbone of Shanxi’s economy. This project further unlocks the potential already within the city and helps deliver multiple benefits to its residents. As clean fuel alternatives continue to gain momentum, the expertise and technology that both Black & Veatch and Chemtex bring to the table helps China’s energy portfolio while supporting growth,” said Sean Ma, Chemtex China’s Chief Executive Officer.
“This is a compelling competitive advantage given the need for more LNG facilities throughout China. We will continue to enable developers to maximize their investments at a faster rate,” said Rochman Goswami, Managing Director, Oil & Gas, Asia. Goswami recently joined the team to lead regional expansion.
Expected to be completed in 2017, this plant will help to satisfy China’s growing appetite for natural gas.

What is PRICO®?
PRICO® technology uses a Black & Veatch-patented, single-mixed refrigerant loop for natural gas liquefaction. The process boasts several key advantages, including:
The lowest capital cost of all competing technologies
A simplified refrigeration system that requires minimal equipment
Simplified control and maintenance
Highly efficient and reliable
The PRICO® process is used in LNG production facilities worldwide because of its flexibility for LNG capacity and in feed gas composition. This flexibility is invaluable for clients because they receive natural gas from multiple sources with varying composition and conditions.
