Hanoi, January 19 - Neftegaz.RU. Work on the 1st phase of the $2.3 billion Hai Lang gas-based power project in Vietnam has begun, the Vietnamese government announced.
The project was approved last year.

The plant, located in Quang Tri province, will have a power generation capacity of 1.5 GW and run on regasified LNG.
The LNG will be imported via a 1.5 million metric tons/year receiving and regas terminal.
The plant is expected to be ready by 2026-27.

Vietnam's T&T group and South Korea's Korea Southern Power Corp (Kospo), Hanwha Energy Corp and Korea Gas Corp (Kogas) are the project's developers, the government said.
T&T group will contribute 40% of the investment capital and while Hanwha, Kospo, Kogas will together contribute 60%.

The southeast Asian nation is promoting gas-fired power as it moves away from coal and oil-based generation.
At present, Vietnam does not import any LNG but expects to begin buying the fuel next year, the country’s minister of industry & trade Nguyen Hong Dien said in a pre-recorded video address posted on YouTube in September 2021 ahead of the 10th LNG Producer-Consumer Conference.

Vietnam aims to reach 18 and 20 GW of wind and solar capacity, respectively, in 2030.
It aims to cut GHG emissions by 27% in 2030 (with international support).
