TECHNIP hopes its successful delivery of the Hanas LNG plant in China will open up opportunities in the mid-scale LNG market.

The French engineering and construction company secured a lump-sum contract in 2009 to provide engineering, supply of main equipment, procurement and construction management services for the natural gas pre-treatment, liquefaction, LNG storage and loading, utilities, offsites, buildings and other infrastructure.
Hanas LNG, which began producing LNG last month, is the largest facility of its kind in China, consisting of two trains with a total capacity of 800,000 tonnes per day. LNG produced at the facility will be used for the domestic market.
Technip said the project was an important milestone as it was the first LNG plant designed and built by the company in the Asia Pacific region.
“The combination of the technological strength of its regional headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and the long-term presence and strong knowledge of the local market in China of its Shanghai operating centre, contributed to the success of the fast track project,” Technip Asia Pacific senior vice president Edgar Pushparatnam said.
“It’s also a breakthrough into the mid-scale LNG market, representing new opportunities for Technip.”
