China News Service, Chengdu, June 10 (Reporter Zhang Lang) The reporter learned from China Energy Construction Gezhouba Electromechanical Company on the 10th that at 20:00 local time on the 9th, the Amur natural gas processing plant project built by China Energy Construction Gezhouba Electromechanical Company started production. The ceremony was held at the project site in Amur Region, Russia.
The Amur Natural Gas Processing Plant project is located in Svobokin District, Amur Region, Russia, about 200 kilometers from Heihe, China. It is the source of the second large-scale Sino-Russian energy corridor-the eastern route of the Sino-Russian natural gas pipeline. After commissioning, the annual raw gas processing capacity is 420 Billion cubic meters, 38 billion cubic meters of natural gas can be delivered to China each year.
On May 1 this year, the first NGL/NRU (Natural Gas Condensate and Nitrogen Removal) unit in the P1 section of the Amur Natural Gas Processing Plant was officially put into operation, sounding the clarion call for the Eastern Route of Natural Gas Transmission between China and Russia.
As the general contractor for the construction of the P1 tender section of the project, China Energy Construction Gezhouba Electromechanical Company undertook the supporting projects of 6 sets of NGL/NRU devices, 3 sets of helium removal devices and peripheral systems.
In the Amur area, there are 179 days of the year where the temperature is below zero. The project site is covered by snow and ice for half of the year. The minimum temperature is minus 52℃, and the frozen soil layer is about 3 meters deep. The harsh environment greatly increases the on-site construction. Difficulty.
In order to ensure that the project is fulfilled on schedule, the project team compiled the "Instruction Manual for Winter Construction in Extremely Cold Regions" according to the characteristics of local construction conditions, and formulated a practical safety construction checklist. The manual was used as the winter safety construction guidance, and the list was used as the winter safety construction "gold". Standards to ensure construction safety in extreme cold weather conditions, and comprehensively improve the professional safety management level of oil and gas chemical engineering.
According to reports, as an important link connecting the traditional friendship and friendly cooperation between China and Russia, the smooth implementation of the Amur natural gas processing plant project is important for diversifying China’s natural gas imports, ensuring the security of energy supply, and stimulating the sustained and stable economic growth of China and Russia. It is of great significance and has positive significance and demonstrative effects in advancing the connection between China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative and the construction of the Eurasian Economic Union proposed by Russia.
It is reported that after the completion of the Russian Amur natural gas processing plant, it will become one of the world's largest natural gas processing plants, with a raw gas processing capacity of 42 billion cubic meters per year, a commercial natural gas production capacity of 38 billion cubic meters per year, and a helium gas production capacity of 60 million cubic meters per year. , Ancillary products ethane 2.4 million tons/year, propane 1 million tons/year, butane 500,000 tons/year, heavy hydrocarbons 200,000 tons/year.
