SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China City Natural Gas Investment Group is expected to restart its 450,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Xining in Qinghai on 16 September, a company source said on Friday.

The company shut the plant on 10 September to connect it to a newly-built storage tank, the source said.

“We have built a 1,800cbm LNG tank as the storage capacity of the existing nine 150cbm tanks is limited,” the source explained.

The LNG supply from the plant was not affected as the company had been supplying customers from its inventory during the shutdown, the source added.

The company had been running the plant at full blast before the shutdown on 11 September .

Feedstock gas is supplied by PetroChina’s Sebei Oilfield located in northwest China.

China City Natural Gas Investment Group, a subsidiary of Kunlun Energy, is largely engaged in LNG production and distribution, and the construction of city gas networks and related facilities.
