Yantai/Mar. 24, Sinopec’s LNG test production station in Inner Mongolia, the first one built in the desert, has been running steadily as the first quarter is coming to an end.
For this project, Jereh provided skid facilities for de-carbonization, acid gas removal, dehydration to boost the development of wellhead gas liquefaction in the desert areas.
Jereh Provides Gas Processing Facilities for Sinopec’s
First LNG Test Production Station in the Desert.
The project is located in the westernmost desert of Inner Mongolia, where has witnessed significant oil production rise since an increasing number of oil wells began drilling operation. In July 2018, another well with high-production oil & gas flow was discovered, marking a major breakthrough for local oil & gas development.
Due to the lack of well stations, the crude oil produced here can only be refined in factories that are hundreds of miles away, resulting in high transportation cost. It is also worth noting that, a decent amount of associated gas will come out during the process of oil production. Direct burning of associated gas will have a negative impact on local environment.
To resolve the issues of high transportation cost and associated gas utilization, Sinopec launched a project to construct storage stations and gas purification facilities.
As the contractor of this project, Jereh team adopted skid design to overcome limitations like sand storms, troublesome transportation, complicated construction based on on-spot investigation.
Jereh all-skid design can save space and reduce on-spot installation workload by 50%, making it easier for construction. Also, the all-skid and highly-integrated design brings more convenience for transportation.

Moreover, the advanced MDEA sweetening technolgy and molecular dehydration technology are adopted. Jereh self-developed cold-oil absorption technology is capable of producing valuable liquefied natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas and steady hydrocarbon simultaneously, which realizes local utilization of oil & gas resources while benefiting the energy conservation, environmental management, low carbon business.
The project was initiated at the beginning of 2019 and finished in December, 2019, with the crude oil processing capacity of 96.8 ton/d and associated gas processing capacity of 176.5 scfd. In the future, Jereh will keep contributing to the development and utilization of natural gas and playing a positive role in promoting local economies.
The project is located in the westernmost desert of Inner Mongolia.
