SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Dunhuang Natural Gas is expected to start up its 100,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Dunhuang in Gansu in the first half of 2012, a company source said on Thursday.
In addition, the company is planning to build six LNG storage tanks with a capacity of 100cbm each and has completed the construction of four of the tanks, according to the source.
“The feedstock will be supplied by PetroChina’s Qinghai oilfield,” the source said.
“We will sell the LNG from the Dunhuang plant to local and neighbouring markets,” the source added.
The company is planning the second phase of the project, but the capacity will depend on market response, the source said.
The firm is spending yuan (CNY) 53.7m ($8.4m) on the LNG project, according to the source.
Dunhuang Natural Gas mainly engages in the production and sales of natural gas.
The firm's city network for natural gas transportation spanned 150km in early 2011.
The company owns a receiving terminal for piped gas and a gas station for compressed natural gas (CNG).
