Fujian will be China's second LNG importation terminal, importing 2.6 million tons of liquid natural gas annually, intended to supply two major new power plants, together with the five major coastal cities. Commercial operation is targeted to begin in early 2008.
Emerson has engineered and delivered its Daniel natural gas metering systems on 12 high-performance gas metering skids that ensure high integrity, accurate, reliable measurement of natural gas volume, quality, composition and calorific value. Accurate, reliable custody transfer measurement of natural gas is critical for fiscal accounting and taxation purposes.
Emerson Process Management's Daniel products in this project include ultrasonic metering skids and gas turbine metering skids, including products such as the Daniel SeniorSonic gas ultrasonic meters, Daniel gas turbine meters, Daniel flow computers and Daniel Danalyzer gas chromatographs.
"We are delighted to be selected by Fujian LNG for the fiscal metering responsibility for the second terminal in China," commented John Berra, president of Emerson Process Management. "Emerson is enjoying significant growth in the global LNG industry, and we are committed to meeting the CNOOC requirements and timing for fiscal metering with our industry leading Daniel technology, skids, and services."
