The prime minister approved the suggestion of the Ministry of Transport of adding a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Ca Na LNG Power Complex.
|The Ca Na LNG power complex will turn Ninh Thuan province into the energy hub of the country |
Accordingly, the terminal can endure loads of up to 97,000 tonnes and will directly support the first phase (1,500MW) of the LNG power complex.
The national LNG import and transit port plan is part of the national energy and seaport system master plan for 2021-2030 with a vision to 2050.
By the end of 2020, Ninh Thuan People's Committee issued Decision No.2162/QD-UBND approving the project of the first phase of the Ca Na LNG power complex, with a capacity of 1,500MW implemented in Phuoc Diem commune (Thuan Nam district), with a total project investment value of more than VND49 trillion ($2.13 billion).
The project includes the LNG power plant using combined-cycle gas turbines with a capacity of 1,500MW, as well as the material supply and handling system (including LNG import terminal, LNG storage, gas recycling warehouse, and gas pipeline system), the power transmission system to ensure the transmission of the entire 6,000MW generated by the LNG power complex, and the related infrastructure and technical works.
The Ca Na LNG complex will commence implementation in the third quarter of 2021, and put into operation in the third quarter of 2024.
