Chinese oil and gas company Jereh has been contracted to build 10 LNG fueling stations in Russia, which is believed to be the biggest order for LNG fueling within the Russian market till now.
Jereh said on Friday it is going to provide integrated services for this project covering modular design, procurement, manufacture, as well as commissioning.
Its total fueling capacity is estimated to reach 500 million liters per year, bolstering local LNG supply.
The whole project will be delivered in this September and put into use a month later, in October, the company said.
In 2018, the Russian government decided to subsidize civilian-use of LNG with the aim to benefit both the local environment and natural gas export.
However, a limited number of fueling stations in local areas has constrained the development. Jereh, however, expects market demand and government policy to spark a breaking-out LNG market in the near future.
For this project, metering accuracy, reliable quality and steady performance were highly accentuated by the client. Jereh hence conducted customized design that fueling station and control room are integrated into two 20-feet containers respectively, leaving it more compact and more convenient for transportation.
