HOUSTON, June 22
-- Ningxia Hanas Natural Gas Co. Ltd. has let a lump-sum contract to Technip for construction of a midscale LNG plant in Yinchuan, China.

The contract covers the engineering, supply of main equipment, procurement, and construction management services for facilities for natural gas pretreatment, liquefaction, LNG storage and loading, utilities, offsites, buildings, and other infrastructure.

When built, the LNG plant will be the largest facility of its kind in China, Technip reported. It will have two 400,000 tonne/year trains, both based on an Air Products liquefaction process. The LNG will be distributed largely to the Chinese domestic market.

Technip's operating centers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Shanghai, China, will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in second half 2011.
