Gulf Resources (NASDAQ-GURE) is pleased to announce it has completed the construction of its first brine water and natural gas well field in Sichuan Province.
The first step was to build and then pave a road (Photos 1 & 2) in this highly remote area to provide access for trucks and other heavy-duty equipment.
Next, we had to level the construction site (Photo 3) and install the foundations for the major equipment (Photo 4&5). Then we had to build sheds to house the well head valve system (Photo 7).
We then installed the equipment needed to begin production including the compressor (Photo 9), the exhaust vent riser (Photo 10), the control panel (Photo 11), wastewater tank purification equipment (Photo 12), and the underground pipeline including power cable & control circuit (Photo 13&14), among others with the existing well head valve system (Photo 8), as well as finishing the production site and installing lighting (Photo 6).
Now that the construction of the site and the drilling equipment is completed and finished testing, we are in the process of securing our first customers for natural gas. We expect to be able to begin trial production in the very near future.
We are very excited about the opportunities for natural gas production in Sichuan Province. China has limited supplies of natural gas, which is a clean burning fuel. The government has indicated its intention to promote the development of natural gas. We are very pleased to have the potential opportunity to be a part of this growth.
