SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xi'an City Xilan Natural Gas plans to shut its 500,000 cubic metre/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Jingbian in Shaanxi province for an annual turnaround on 10 July, a company source said on Monday.

The plant is expected to be restarted on 6 August, the source said.
