SHOUGUANG, China, Jan. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:GURE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today announces the completion of its first brine water and natural gas well field construction in Sichuan Province.

The first step was to build and then pave a road in this highly remote area to provide access for trucks and other heavy-duty equipment. Next, we had to level the construction site and install the foundations for the major equipment.  Then we had to build sheds to house the well head valve system.

We then installed the equipment needed to begin production including the wastewater tank purification equipment, the compressor, the exhaust vent riser, the control panel, and the underground pipeline including power cable & control circuit, among others with the existing well head valve system, as well as finishing the production site and installing lighting.

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.

Gulf Resources will place the Sichuan Project Presentation with photos on its website today after market open on January 11, 2017 EST. For those who are interested may download and review it follow the link below on company website:
