Speaking at the ceremony, NA Chairwoman Ngan congratulated the Petro Viet Nam and PVGas on launching a crucial project which helps ensure national energy security and makes an important progress in the nation’s oil and gas sector. 

She highlighted the role of the oil and gas sector to the nation’s socio-economic development, expressing her hope that the plant will stabilize the market’s demand, contributing to the economic development in the Southwest in general and Ca Mau Province in particular. 

The NA, the Government, ministries and agencies will support the Petro Viet Nam and PVGas to uphold its role as the nation’s key economic sector, she affirmed.   

Built within two years at a cost of more than VND10 trillion (US$450 million), the plant has a daily capacity of 6.2 million cu.m of gas and is able to hold 8,000 tons of liquefied petroleum gas and 3,000 cu.m of condensate. 

Once operational, it will supply around 600 tons of liquefied petroleum gas and 35 tons of condensate to the market per day, meeting 10% of domestic demand.
