The number of domestic natural gas filling stations has increased by 1,400 for half a year

“Since 2013, the construction of gas filling stations has been extremely fast. As of the end of the first quarter of 2013, CNPC completed 545 LNG refueling stations and 81 CNOOC. Sinopec has 20 LNG refueling stations.”

Perhaps everyone will feel that the natural gas vehicles around them are growing more and more; especially in the area of ​​taxis, taxis in many cities in our country have already started “oil to gas”.

The monitoring data of several market institutions show that since 2013, the number of LNG (liquefied natural gas) and CNG (compressed natural gas) stations has been growing at an unprecedented rate, among which the three major giants of CNPC, CNOOC and Sinopec still occupy gas stations. The forefront of market share.

As for the consumption of gasoline and diesel, the current increase in the consumption of gasoline and diesel in the country has been considerably lower than in the past. In some regions, there has been a decline. A number of industry sources told reporters that the slowdown in the consumption of gasoline and diesel has slowed down. Apart from the slowdown in macroeconomic growth, the substitution of natural gas for gasoline and diesel has become an increasingly important factor.

The number of gas stations has surged

Although the National Development and Reform Commission raised the price of natural gas for non-residential use, the momentum of “oil-to-gas” vehicles is still strong.

According to Zhuochuang, the CNG refueling stations nationwide have grown from about 2,400 at the end of 2012 to about 3,000 at the end of June 2013. Xinjiang, Sichuan, Shandong, and Chongqing are the regions with the largest number of gas stations. Except for a small number of gas stations in the Yunnan-Guizhou region and basically no Tibet, the number of gas stations in other regions is growing rapidly.

In terms of LNG refueling stations, according to An Xun Sisuwang Energy statistics, there were about 500 seats in LNG refueling stations in China since the end of 2012 and by the end of the second quarter of 2013. At the same time, the number of buildings currently under construction and expected to be completed in the third quarter is approximately 365. Therefore, it is expected that by the end of the third quarter, the number of LNG refueling stations that have already been put into operation in China is expected to reach nearly 1,700.

According to statistics from the two agencies, the number of filling stations in the first half of 2013 increased by more than 1,400.

Whether it is CNG or LNG, the largest number of gas stations are still the traditional giants of CNPC, CNOOC and Sinopec. “Since 2013, the construction of filling stations has been particularly fast. As of the end of the first quarter of 2013, CNPC completed 545 LNG refueling stations and 81 CNOOC. Sinopec has only 20 LNG refueling stations.” Wang Energy analyst Wang Ruiqi told reporters.

Kunlun Energy, which is owned by CNPC, is the main platform for its strategy of “relying on gas”. Kunwen Energy senior vice president Zhong Wenxu disclosed during the “3rd China International LNG Conference” in June 2013 that the company expects to build more than 600 LNG refueling stations by the end of 2013. He said that since the company established the strategy of "relying on gas for oil" in 2008, it has planned to build 19 LNG receiving stations, and it has already put into operation eight. It is estimated that by the end of the "Twelfth Five-year Plan", LNG processing capacity will be the current two. More times.

PetroChina "left and right beat each other"

As China’s largest crude oil and natural gas production company, for CNPC, the business of gas stations and gas stations undoubtedly has a phenomenon of shifting. This situation has already begun to show signs in 2012.

PetroChina's financial report showed that in 2012, the company's natural gas and pipeline sales increased by 16.8% from RMB 173.058 billion in 2011 to RMB 20.21.96 billion. However, due to the increase in losses of imported natural gas and LNG from Central Asia, the natural gas and pipeline segment recorded a loss of 2.110 billion yuan in 2012, a decrease of 17.654 billion yuan compared to 2011 operating profit of 15.533 billion yuan, of which sales of imported natural gas and LNG suffered a loss of approximately 41.9 billion yuan. .

PetroChina said in its financial report that the main reasons for the increase in turnover of the natural gas and pipeline segment were first of all natural gas sales, increased gas transmission, and rising sales prices of natural gas. Second, the company expanded urban gas and LPG businesses.

Since 2013, the development of the refined oil and natural gas markets has continued to increase. In the first quarter, PetroChina’s domestic gasoline, diesel and kerosene sales decreased by 4.3% year-on-year, and its refined oil sales segment realized operating profit of 2.122 billion yuan, a decrease of 65.0% over the same period of the previous year. In the same period, its natural gas and pipeline segment’s turnover was 590.16. Billion yuan, an increase of 10.28% over the 53.576 billion yuan in 2012.

PetroChina also showed different attitudes in the construction of gas stations and gas stations. At the end of 2012, PetroChina announced that it will contract gas stations with annual sales volume of less than 3,000 tons. PetroChina has nearly 10,000 gas stations that meet this requirement. At the same time, PetroChina is actively expanding the business of gas stations in various regions. For example, the sales of Fuzhou Branch of CNPC Fujian recently submitted an application for autogas refueling operations to the governing section of the local construction committee, which is currently being processed.

Analyst Wang Xiaokun of Zhuo Chuang told reporters that natural gas vehicles are more environmentally friendly and more economical than gasoline and diesel vehicles. Therefore, “oil to gas” is a major trend in the future. PetroChina's refueling stations and gas stations do have a relationship of competition and substitution. However, the overall situation is "left-handed rightists."

Froth pumps are the latest generation of foam pump/froth pump based on the advanced technology at home and abroad, including Foam Tank Froth Slurry Pump, High Pressure Slurry Pump. It could eliminate the foam/froth in the slurry in running and work normally even if the feeding slurry is not enough. Froth pump is the ideal products to deliver the frothy slurry, especially in the flotation technique process.

Features of Foam/Froth Pumps                  
1. On the bearing house, there is the motor base or motor support, which helps adopt belt drive or direct drive. It is very convenient to change the pulleys to adjust the speed and meet the changes of the work conditions.
2.The box is made of steel, stainless steel or rubber lined steel. It has the feeding suction and overflow box in the tangent line. The overflow box could deliver the surplus slurry back to the pool. The feeding suction in the tangent line could transport the slurry fast and eliminate part of the froth.
3. Froth pumps are of double-casing. The materials of the wet parts could be metal alloy, rubber or other non-metal material according to the slurry properties.
Application of Froth Pumps
It is used widely in the metallurgy, minerals, coal washery, chemical and other industrial departments, suitable for handing the abrasive and corrosive slurry with the froth.
