Shanghai: China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) has commissioned the Kongsberg Maritime's process simulation group and Taike Engineering Beijing to supply equipment for China's Fujian LNG project.

The companies will supply CNOOC with an operator training simulator, pipeline leak detection system and gas management system. An integrated team with engineers from Kongsberg and Taike Engineering Beijing Co. Ltd will execute the project. Taike is Kongsberg Maritime's cooperation partner in China for process simulation.

The Fujian LNG project is composed of terminal and trunkline projects, three gas-fired power plant projects and five city distribution projects. The terminal site is located at Xiuyu, Putian, to the north of Meizhou Bay. The project consists of two phases and is expected to cost approximately $2bn.

Phase I will have a capacity of 2.6 mtpa (million tons per annum) and is expected to start commercial operation on December 31, 2007. It will supply gas to the Putian Power Plant, Xiamen East Power Plant, Jinjiang Power Plant, and Fuzhou, Putian, Quanzhou, Xiamen and Zhangzhou gas distribution companies.

The design capacity for Phase II is 5 mtpa and will come on stream in 2010. It will supply gas to the second phase of Putian Power Plant, Xiamen East Power Plant, Quanzhou Power Plant and Fuzhou Huaneng Power Plant.  [08/03/07]
