SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xinjiang Borui Energy is planning to resume commercial supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its 300,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day plant at Korla in Xinjiang on 18 April, a company source said on Friday.

The company has been running the plant at 90% of capacity since 10 April, after it shut the unit for maintenance in late March because of a technical fault, the source said.

“Production flow was not stable before the shutdown, with an average daily output of about 200,000 cbm,” the source said, adding that it may take a few days for the company to stabilise the flow after the turnaround.

Xinjiang Borui Energy is largely engaged in the production of LNG and compressed natural gas, using feedstock gas supplied by PetroChina’s Tarim oilfield.
