China's COOEC dispatches two modules for LNG Canada

Chinese offshore engineering major Offshore Oil Engineering Co. (COOEC) has dispatched two modules built for Shell-led LNG Canada, State Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC), which supervises and administers Chinese state-owned assets and investments, said on May 12.

The two delivered modules will be used in the acid gas-removing processes of the LNG Canada project, an important part of the safety guarantee work, SASAC said.

"The very construction of the modules adopts integrated construction solutions, which is the first in the world in the LNG modular parts building sector," said Zhuang Hongchang, the project manager with COOEC, a unit of the state-owned oil giant CNOOC.

The tonnage and size of the modules are 1.5 times that of regular ones, with a single deck weighing nearly 700 metric tons.

According to COOEC, the first phase of the project includes building two liquefaction trains with a capacity of 14mn metric tons/year, and the company is responsible for building 35 process modules for the project, including 19 core parts.

COOEC has started construction on all 35 process modules and 32 of them have completed the assembly process. The overall construction progress has reached almost 80%, SASAC said.
