Tianjin will build no less than five natural gas power plants by the end of 2015 as the municipal government accelerates the projects to increase clean energy consumption, ICIS C1 Energy, a Shanghai-based energy consultancy, said on Wednesday.

The city has one natural gas power station under construction and another four projects approved.

The projects will be funded and built by the five top power generation companies in China: China Guodian Corp, China Huadian Corp, China Datang Corp, China Huaneng Group and China Power Investment Corp.

The Chentangzhuang power plant, which is under construction, will be completed by the first quarter of 2014, said a local source.

The resources for the projects are mainly the pipeline natural gas from China National Petroleum Corp. Some liquefied natural gas in Tianjin port from China National Offshore Oil Corporation will also be used in the future.
