Chevron produces first gas from Chuandongbei project in China

SAN RAMON, US: Chevron Corporation said that its fully-owned subsidiary Unocal East China Sea Ltd has begun natural gas production from the first stage of the Chuandongbei project in southwest China.

The start-up of the first train commences stage one of the project. Production is planned to ramp up over coming months as all three trains come on line. The three trains have a combined design outlet capacity of 258 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. The Chuandongbei project is estimated to contain potentially recoverable natural gas resources of 3 trillion cubic feet.

Chuandongbei is one of the largest onshore gas projects developed by an international oil company and a national oil company in China.

“First gas for the Chuandongbei Project represents a significant milestone and highlights Chevron's leadership in the development of sour gas resources,” said Jay Johnson, executive vice president, Upstream. “The project will be an important supplier of clean and affordable energy to the rapidly growing economy in southwest China.”

The Chuandongbei project covers over 800 square kilometre in Sichuan province and the Chongqing municipality. Unocal East China Sea Ltd holds a 49 percent participating interest as the operator and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) holds a 51 participating percent interest.

“First gas at Chuandongbei represents the next step in our energy partnership with China. Chevron has worked closely with CNPC and the Chinese government at all levels to develop the project safely and reliably. The project has provided jobs and business opportunities for the local community, and will continue to contribute to the regional economy for decades,” said Melody Meyer, president, Chevron Asia Pacific, exploration and production company.
