Ho Chi Minh City’s Hiep Phuoc Power Plant began receiving gas from PetroVietnam October 15 for generating electricity, officials said.
The gas, supplied through a 39-kilometer pipeline, passes through Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province and the city’s Can Gio and Nha Be Districts, and can supply a maximum of 10.4 million cubic meters a day.
With three turbines in operation, Hiep Phuoc alone requires 2.1-2.4 million cubic meters. The rest will be shared by the Nhon Trach power plant in Dong Nai Province and other industrial units.
