Topsøe lands another SNG-plant contract in China  

By Gerald Ondrey |

The new coal-to-SNG plant for the Yinan Substitute Natural Gas (SNG) Project will convert locally mined sub-bituminous coal into SNG with the aim of reducing imports of natural gas for power and heat generation. In its first stage of completion, the plant is to produce around 2-billion Nm3/yr of SNG. The customer is the power provider CPI Xinjiang Energy Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of China Power Investment Corp., one of the five biggest power generators in China. The plant is scheduled to go online by the end of 2014.

Haldor Topsøe A/S (Lyngby, Denmark; www.topsoe.com) will be the licensor for the methanation section and will supply license, engineering design, catalyst and services.

The produced SNG will meet the stringent requirements of the pipeline operators, and will be delivered through existing natural gas lines.

The Yinan SNG Project is a key project in CPI’s development of Xinjiang industrial cluster and an important part in its 12th Five-year Plan for high-tech industries, playing a significant role in CPI’s strategic transformation and successful realization of the goals in second step of its Three-step Strategy. This project complies with the national strategy of "western development" as well as national industrial policies and plans for energy development.

Topsøe’s TREMP process has now been chosen for eight large SNG lines in China and Korea.
