SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jincheng Anthracite Mining Group (JAMG) plans to start up a 300,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Jincheng in Shanxi province in July, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The company is currently conducting tests on the machineries at the plant, according to the source from Shanxi Yigao Coalbed Methane, a subsidiary of JAMG.

A 600,000 cbm/day phase two project was also planned. However, the actual construction schedule has not yet been determined, the source added.

The plant uses coal-bed methane produced by its block in Qinshui basin, also in Shanxi province, as feedstock.

The target market for the project’s output are not immediately known.

JAMG is China’s largest coal-bed methane and coal-based chemical producer.
