Hanoi (VNA) – A gas processing plant in U Minh district of the southernmost province of Ca Mau, designed with a capacity of 6.2 million cubic metres per day, will finish trial operations and begin commercial production in June 2017.

According to deputy head of the management board of the factory Nguyen Tien Hai, the project has completed 99 percent of the workload, and ran for 2.5 million hours without any incidents on a pilot basis.

The project, worth 300 million USD was invested by the PetroVietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation (PV Gas), aims to process natural gas from blocks PM3 and 46-CN to create high value products, including liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and natural gas condensate, he added.

With the application of the latest technologies to treat wastewater without using chemicals to rinse pipes, the project ensures environmental protection.

Once put into operation in June, the gas processing plant will be able to produce 600 tonnes of LPG and 34 tonnes of condensate per day.-VNA
