SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sichuan Guang’an Huayou Gas is planning to start trial runs at its 1m cubic metres (Mm3) /day  liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Guang’an in Sichuan province in late October, a company source said on Thursday.

The project is set to supply LNG to southwest and south China markets in November, the source said.

The company will introduce more than 10 LNG trucks into service when the project comes on stream. Logistics companies owned by PetroChina will also be involved, according to the source.

Gas produced at PetroChina’s southwestern gas field will be used as feedstock, the source said.

The project will supply LNG to southwest and south China, including Sichuan, Chongqing, Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangdong and Guangxi, he said.

The company has signed supply agreements with some clients, he added.

There is a strong demand for natural gas in southwest China but local LNG supply has been tight because transporting the gas is inconvenient. The LNG project is expected to ease gas supply tightness in southwest China to some extent, market sources said.

Sichuan Guang’an Huayou Gas is a subsidiary of China Natural Gas, which was founded by China National Petroleum Corp in 1994.
