Freestate – Virginia Gas Project – Chinese

A Chinese company received a contract to help establish the first commercial Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facility in the country.    A local group, Renergen  announced on 29 October 2019 that Western Shell Cryogenic Equipment (WSCE) of China will be involved in establishing the Virginia Gas Project, which will produce LNG and liquid helium.  According to the company, the natural gas at the Free State field contains one of the richest helium concentrations recorded globally. The natural gas is also very pure with an average of over 90% methane.

‘n Chinese maatskappy het ‘n kontrak ontvang om die eerste kommersiële vloeibare aardgasfasiliteit in die land te vestig.   ‘n Plaaslike groep, Renergen, het op 29 Oktober 2019 aangekondig dat Western Shell Cryogenic Equipment (WSCE) van China betrokke sal wees by die stigting van die Virginia Gas Project, wat LNG en vloeibare helium gaan vervaardig.

Volgens die maatskappy bevat die aardgas in die Vrystaatveld een van die rykste heliumkonsentrasies wat wêreldwyd aangeteken is. Die aardgas is ook baie suiwer met ‘n gemiddeld van meer as 90% metaan.    Dit sal in 2021 operasioneel wees.   Renergen is al sedert 2004 op kleinskaal in bedryf, maar sal verbeter met meer ervaring en tegnologie.

Volgens ‘n Renergen woordvoerder gebruik die ontwerp ‘n gemengde verkoelingsiklus vir die vloeibaarheid van die aardgas, wat beteken dat die energieverbruik baie laag is in vergelyking met ander plante op hierdie klein skaal.

Fin24 stated that the plant is expected to be operational within the first half of 2021 and will see the plant produce up to 2,700 GJ of liquid natural gas and 350 kg of liquid helium per day.   WSCE will supply the technology and equipment for the plant, which will be built in part by local engineering group EPCM Bonisan.

Renergen says WSCE has been manufacturing small scale LNG plants since 2004, and helped to build a liquid helium system for the Beijing Positron-Electron Collider in China.

The Virginia plant will be “modularised”: constructed in sizes of standard shipping containers for ease of transport and installation on site. The design uses mixed refrigeration cycle for the liquefaction process of the natural gas, which means the energy consumption is very low as compared to other plants at this small scale, Renergen says.

An agency of the United States government has agreed to lend Renergen more than R600 million to build the Virginia plant.
