SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Ginwa Enterprise plans to start up its 1m cubic metre (cbm)/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Yan’an in northwest China’s Shaanxi province in 2013, a company source said on Monday.
Construction work started on 17 April. The plant is expected to use feedstock gas supplied by PetroChina’s Changqing Oilfield, the source said
Ginwa Enterprise plans to expand the plant’s capacity to 6m cbm/day, the source said, adding that it does not have a specific timeline for this expansion.
Output from the plant will be sold to industrial and residential users across China, the source said.
“We will outsource LNG delivery in the initial stage and establish our own transportation fleet in the future,” the source added.
“We are planning to build two 30,000 cbm storage tanks, which are being designed,” he said.
Ginwa Enterprise is widely engaged in areas such as investment, pharmaceuticals, real estate and new energies.
