SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Huagang Gas Group plans to start building three liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects with a combined production capacity of 4.5m cbm/day this year, a company source said on Wednesday.

All three projects are scheduled to come on stream in 2014, the source said.

The company’s 500,000 cbm/day plant in Hebei and 2m cbm/day plant in Inner Mongolia will consume domestically produced natural gas supplied by PetroChina, while its 2m cbm/day plant in Shanxi will process coal-bed methane extracted from the local Qinshui Basin, the source added.

Output sales have not yet been determined, the source said.

“[The company has] been building LNG-refuelling stations across the country to enhance the application of LNG as vehicle fuels,” the source added.

Details on the cost of construction were not immediately available.

Hebei-based Huagang Gas Group, a joint venture of PetroChina’s Kunlun Energy and Huabei Oilfield, is largely engaged in the supply and distribution of pipeline gas, LNG and compressed natural gas (CNG).
