Russia’s Gazprom International hopes that in 2018, the central province of Quang Tri will continue to create favourable conditions for a gas-to-power project.
|Representatives of Gazprom International and Quang Tri People’s Committee discuss the plan of buiding a gas-to-power project in the province. |
This project, the company said, will contribute to the socio-economic development of the province.
Kovtun Andray, head of Gazprom International’s representative office in Viet Nam, revealed this at a recent meeting with the provincial People’s Committee (PPC).
He also expressed gratefulness to the province for supporting and creating favourable conditions for Gazprom International to carry out the project of exploiting and operating the gas-to-power plant in the southeast Quang Tri Economic Zone.
Nguyen Quan Chinh, PPC’s vice-chairman, highly appreciated that Gazprom International had proceeded with the steps and determination to implement the gas-to-power project in Quang Tri. The provincial leader also urged Gazprom to continue to have good and effective coordination in promoting the project to ensure progress and quality.
At the same time, the province will co-operate with the company to push up relevant ministries and sectors to bring gas to the mainland as soon as possible, Chinh said.
Last year, the two sides had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on co-operating to implement a project to build a gas treatment plant from Bao Vang field and a gas-to-power project in the southeast Quang Tri Economic Zone. The province has also made great efforts by organising workshops with the participation of Viet Nam National Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam) and other related organisations to promote the implementation of this significant project.
