Shanxi Province and Nordrhein Westfalen ally to exploit gas

Apr 14, 2005 02:00 AM

Shanxi province is set to collaborate with Germany's Nordrhein Westfalen in exploitation of natural gas in the province.
According to the cooperation memo made on April 6, both sides are going to exploit the natural gas and put it into commercial use as well.

Shanxi province is rich in coal, where the gas reserve is estimated to reach around 10 tcm, about one third of total in the country.
The natural gas reserve, if used for power generation, is able to generate electricity of 22 tn kWh, which is able to meet the nationwide demand for electricity within nearly ten years.

China's power consumption went up to about 2.17 tn kWh last year.
On the other hand, too much gas in coal bed often leads to coalmine accidents. The exsuction of gas will reduce the fire damp explosion by a large extent.
