KHABAROVSK, September 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Khabarovsk Region is considering building two gas chemical plants to process up to 1.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas from the Sila Sibiri (Power of Siberia) gas pipeline, a spokesperson to the regional government’s fuel and energy department, said Wednesday.

The amount of investments was not provided. Construction could be financed by Russian and foreign investors.

The plants will separately produce dimethyl ether and methanol.
