SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Suzhou Huafeng Liquid Natural Gas plans to expand its liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity to 190,000 cubic metres (cbm)/day in 2013, a company source said on Monday.
It expects to achieve this when it starts up a 100,000 cbm/day LNG plant at Suzhou in east China’s Jiangsu province next year, the source said, adding that a date has not been specified yet.
Huafeng Liquid Natural Gas has a 90,000 cbm/day LNG plant at the same site.
The company is expanding its LNG capacity because of rising demand caused by more vehicles switching over to natural gas and from an increase in power generation demand in east China, the source said.
Output from the facility will be sold mainly to the markets in east China, according to the source.
The plant will use domestically produced natural gas which will be supplied through PetroChina’s West-East gas pipeline, the source said.
“We will build a 1,200 cbm storage tank… bringing our total [LNG] storage capacity to 2,100 cbm when it is completed,” the source said.
Huafeng Liquid Natural Gas supplies LNG and provides support services to its customers in east China.
