The Phase 1 of the Project had been handed over to operate & exploit from 2015 with 151km of offshore pipeline connected from KP 207.5 to BK-Thien Ung Rig.
The scale of Phase 2 of the Project comprises: 118km of offshore pipeline with 26” diameter starting from KP 207.5 leading to Long Hai Land Fall Station; onshore pipeline & stations include: Land Fall Station (LFS); 8km of pipeline with 26” diameter leading from LFS to Gas Processing Plant (GPP2) at Dinh Co; 29,5km of pipeline with 30” diameter leading dry gas from GPP2 to GDC Phu My; 01 valve station at Phuoc Hoa and the system receiving NCS2 gas at Phu My Gas Distribution Center; 25km of 02 pipelines leading products (Condensate 6” & LPG 6”) from GPP2 to Thi Vai and 03 valve stations along onshore pipeline; GPP2 at Dinh Co.
The Phase 2 of the revised NCS2 Project comprises main packages: Offshore Pipeline EPC (EPC-1); Gas Processing Plant EPC (EPC-2); Onshore Pipeline and Stations EPC (EPC-3); Procurement of Steel Plate; Linepipe Manufacture; Linepipe Coating and some other packages.

The signing of 3 contracts mentioned above is to make sure the target: finish the connection with offshore pipeline and ready to receive Sao Vang – Dai Nguyet gas, estimately on the three quarter of 2020.
The Sao Vang – Dai Nguyet Gas Pipeline Project also has carried an important meaning and has promptness not less than NCS2 Project: This is the investment and construction of the offshore pipeline from Sao Vang compressing frame connecting to existing Nam Con Son 2 pipeline, at the same time connecting to Thien Ung – Dai Hung field to collect and transport onshore Sao Vang – Dai Nguyet and Thien Ung – Dai Hung gas. Estimately, after completion on the three quarter of 2020, the project will transport about 2-3 billion cubic meter gas onshore, supplying gas resource for South – East zone. The project will utilize maximum of PV GAS’s available gas industrial infrastructure, raise up investment effect of the project, as well as the effect of exploitation offshore. This pipeline has design capacity of about 7.9 million cubic meter gas per day & night.
