China Gezhouba Group Corporation (CGGC) has signed an agreement with NIPIGAZpererabotka to carry out the construction and installation of cryogenic gas separation units for the Amur gas processing plant (GPP) in Russia.
Under the agreement, CGGC company China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corporation will design, manufacture and supply equipment, as well as build booster compressor shops and gas dehydration, purification and fractionation units for the facility.
Germany’s Linde AG will supply the Amur GPP with core process equipment for the cryogenic recovery of helium and valuable petrochemical substances from gas.
CGGC will work on the project as a contractor, with the main subcontractor to be chosen from local Russian construction companies.
The document was inked by Dmitry Konov, Chairman of the Management Board of SIBUR on behalf of NIPIGAZpererabotka, and Chen Xiaohua, Vice-President of CGGC.
Once constructed, the Amur GPP will be the largest gas processing plant in Russia and will house the world’s largest helium production facility, producing up to 60 million cubic metres per year.
The Amur GPP facility forms part of Gazprom’s supply of Russian gas to China via the ‘Power of Siberia’ pipeline from eastern Siberian gas fields and will be built in five phases ending in 2024.
The leaders of The Linde Group and Gazprom met in St. Petersburg, Russia, yesterday, in order to review the progress of the Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) construction project.
