SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Chinese firm Xinjiang Xinjie is planning to start up its 250,000cbm/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) project at Hotan in Xinjiang in August, a company source said on Friday.

Feedstock gas will be mainly supplied by PetroChina’s Xinjiang Oilfield and the output will be mainly sold in the southern region of Xinjiang, the source said.

The company has built a 1,700cbm storage tank and LNG delivery will be carried out by CNPC Transportation, which is a PetroChina logistics subsidiary, the source added.

“We are also planning to start up a 100,000cbm/day LNG project in the Kumul region and a 500,000cbm/day project at Karamay around October,” the source added.

Xinjiang Xinjie, a PetroChina subsidiary, is largely engaged in the production, transportation and distribution of LNG and compressed natural gas (CNG).
