The project aims to offer clean, reliable power as well as stimulate economic growth and improve living standards. The mega project will be carried out with the support of the firm’s JV partners – Petro Vietnam and Petro Vietnam Exploration Production Corporation.

Texas/USA – Exxon Mobil, with joint venture partners Petro Vietnam and Petro Vietnam Exploration Production Corporation, recently stated that it is advancing plans for a multi-billion dollar integrated gas-for-power development in central Vietnam. The company has awarded the contract for front-end engineering and design, and is filing appropriate permits, planning applications and other preparatory work for the proposed development.

If approved, Exxon Mobil will lead the construction and operation of the project, which will produce and treat natural gas from the Ca Voi Xanh field, located offshore in block 118. The proposed project consists of an offshore platform, a pipeline to transport the gas to shore, an onshore gas treatment plant and pipelines that feed gas to third-party power plants to generate electricity locally.

“The Ca Voi Xanh project could bring a number of long-term benefits to the country, including cleaner, reliable power to help drive economic growth and improved living standards,” said Liam Mallon, President of Exxon Mobil Development Company. “If the project goes forward, it is estimated to generate 20 billion dollars in revenue to the Vietnamese Government, thousands of local jobs and improved energy security from domestic gas development.”

Major Plant Engineering GROAB is a project database for international major plant engineering and construction. You can find more than 5500 projects within 13 categories. Learn more about GROAB and test the database.

Vietnam Electricity, Petro Vietnam and Sembcorp are in discussions to build and operate the power plants. The proposed base development is expected to generate three gigawatts of power, equivalent to about 10 per cent of Vietnam’s current total power demand.

A final investment decision, targeted in 2020, will be based on a number of factors, including regulatory approvals, government guarantees, executed gas sales agreements and economic competitiveness.
