SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Chinese firm Tianhe Gas is expected to start up its 300,000 cubic metre/day (cbm/day) liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Cangzhou in north China’s Hebei province in the second half of April this year, a company source said on Friday.

The company has been conducting trial runs at the plant since March, the source said.

“Feedstock gas will be mainly supplied by PetroChina’s North China Oilfield, and its output will be sold to [domestic] markets nearby,” the company source said.

“We are looking for a third party logistics company to carry out LNG delivery,” the source added.

Construction of a 2,000 cubic metre storage tank has also been completed.

“We also plan to build a phase two project with a capacity of 600,000cbm/day, but have no specific schedules yet,” the source added.

Tianhe Gas, based in east China’s Jiangsu province, is mainly engaged in the production and sales of industrial gas and LNG. It also invests and runs downstream utilisation facilities.
