Ineos intends to eight ships dragon boat every year from the transportation of 80 million tons of shale gas to Europe. In these shale gas by-product of cheap ethane to reduce the production cost. The Ineos desire lobbying relevant departments of the Chinese government, if successful, or will be built 50 dragon boat will of shale gas in the United States across the Pacific shipped to China...
On July 14, the global fourth major petrochemical producers Ineos chairman Jim Ratcliffe came to Shanghai, China, named for the two coming from the United States to the European shale gas transported the dragon boat. The first shale gas will be shipped in September, 26 days after sailing across Norway, arrived in the Atlantic.
The so-called dragon boat, the full name of the Dragon LNG and multipurpose liquefied gas carrier, load is about 2.75 million cubic meters, carrying ethane, liquefied natural gas (LNG), ethylene and liquefied petroleum gas and other four kinds of liquefied gas, is currently the world's largest multi-purpose gas carrier. In January 2013 Ineos in China Pacific Ocean Engineering Co., Ltd. (Pacific Marine) custom-made eight ships dragon boat, with a total investment of over 10 billion dollars, open a known as "virtual transatlantic natural gas pipeline projects", aimed at low American shale gas to Europe.
It is reported that shale gas (including natural gas) can be extracted from ethane. Ineos "will become the world's first shale gas to Europe with ethane shipping enterprises." Jim Ratcliffe said, in the future we can transport 800000 tons of shale gas to Europe from the United States every year."
Everything is falling costs
Jim Ratcliffe said the reason for starting such a huge project is the source of the world's energy pattern change. "Beginning in 2011, affected by the" shale gas revolution ', the American oil industry prospered under the impetus of the cheap shale gas ethane. At the same time the supply of natural gas in the Scottish north is close to depletion and European oil chemical industry faces more and more pressure of competition. If we do not take measures, we may face the risk of closing the business in Norway, Scotland also need to plan for the long-term business prospects in low cost competitive environment."
Jim Ratcliffe believes that the only way to save the European oil industry is the use of cheap air source from the United states. "The only problem we face is no ship long-distance transport of such large amounts of ethane, the global LNG transportation have for decades, but the history of transport ethane only small ships for short distance transport. Greater ship across the Atlantic." Ineos trade and transport chief operating officer David Thompson said.
Therefore, Ineos joint Danish gas transport ship owner Evergas and the Pacific Ocean sea industry and trade from 2011 began to invest heavily in the development and design of new ships, it is in this context, the dragon boat in the Pacific Ocean was born.
Ineos from Evergas lease eight ships Dragon Boat period of 15 years, every day there will be 6 million barrels of gas from the United States shipped in Norway and Scotland Glen moss plant. The shale gas will from the western Pennsylvania Marseille Luce shale layer, transported pipeline near Philadelphia, the United States of a pier, then shipping across the Atlantic.
Reporter read the information learned, in determining of shale gas in the United States is the only life-saving straw before Ineos has also covet too Britain's shale gas.
In November 20th last year, Broadcasting British Corporation, UK shale gas industry is expected to Ineos will receive a $1000000000 investment. Ineos hope which is located in Stirling County of Grangemount petrochemical plant using shale gas to help change the fate of the petrochemical plant.
To this end, Ineos all around Grangemount petrochemical plant to buy land to explore domestic shale gas production. In shale gas exploration and development permits, Ineos announced on 6% of its income distributed to local residents and land owners plan. Learned from the official website of the United Kingdom Ineos, shale gas project income is 2500000000 pounds.
But the share of income is not too much to support, an environmental protection organization in Scotland, Scotland's friends of the earth, said it was "transparent bribery".
Whether the Chinese market can be expected
According to the insiders revealed to reporters: Ineos is lobbying relevant departments of the Chinese government, hoping to America's shale gas across the Pacific Ocean to be shipped to China, if lobbying success, will build 50 dragon boat.
But the General Administration of Customs of the 2008 processing trade ban import and export commodity catalog display, methane, ethane, platinum, cadmium and other 39 kinds of high pollution, high environmental risk of goods is listed as the processing trade of prohibited commodities. These products are not to be bonded import, export or import and export. So the Dragon Boat advance into the Chinese market should not in name of the transport of ethane, are more likely to is in the name of transportation of LNG and natural gas. The traffic department of transportation water science research institute researcher Xie Xie told reporters in the introduced gas transport market is open, so the Ineos to China's shale gas as a transportation should no policy barriers, but Xie Xie stressed: "the key to see whether the United States stable gas supply, the stability of the shale gas production worrying."
