SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jizhong Energy Jingxing Mining Group is planning to start up its 30m cubic metre (cbm)/year coke gas-based natural gas plant at Shijiazhuang in Hebei province in November, a company source said on Wednesday.
The company plans to build a 60m cbm/year plant in phase two of the project and a 210m cbm/year plant in the third phase, although the schedules for these have not yet been determined, the source added.
Feedstock coke gas will be supplied by the company itself and the output will be sold to Shijiazhuang Public Transport as compressed natural gas (CNG), the source added.
In Shijiazhuang, buses and taxies are run on CNG and some private cars, coaches and trucks have been refitted to run on gas as well, a local gas-filling station operator said.
Jizhong Energy Jingxing Mining Group is involved in the production and transportation of coal as well as the coal coking industry.
