SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sichuan Suoyu Gas is planning to start up its new 50,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Dazhou in Sichuan province in May this year, a company source said on Tuesday.

Output from the facility will be mainly sold to markets near Dazhou, the source said.

“We also built a 750cbm storage tank and bought 10 trucks for LNG delivery,” the source said, adding that “a phase two project with a capacity of 250,000cbm/day will be considered, depending on market demand”.

Construction work at the LNG plant was completed in late 2010 but its start-up was delayed because of the lack of feedstock gas supply, a source from a Chongqing-based LNG equipment design firm said.

“Feedstock gas is supplied by PetroChina’s southwest oil and gas fields in the Sichuan Basin,” the source added.
