SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South China-based Dawei Energy plans to start up a 3m cubic metre/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) project at Heze in Shandong province in 2014, a company source said on Thursday.

The company held a groundbreaking ceremony for the yuan (CNY)1.4bn ($220m) plant on 19 June, according to the source.

The plant will mainly process feedstock gas supplied through PetroChina’s second West-East Gas Pipeline, which delivers natural gas imported from central Asia, the source said.

The company also plans to invest CNY1.7bn for a 600,000 tonne/year methanol-gasoline at the same site but no time frame has been decided yet, he added.

Dawei Energy is largely engaged in the utilisation of natural gas, construction and operation of gas-filling stations.
