SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jincheng Anthracite Mining Group (JAMG) plans to start commercial supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its liquefaction plant at Jincheng in Shanxi province on 15 October, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.

The company has been conducting trial operations at its 300,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day plant since 7 October at about 50% utilisation rate, according to the source from Chengan Logistics, a JAMG subsidiary responsible for LNG distribution.

LNG output from the plant will be sold across China, the source added.

The plant processes coal-bed methane produced by its block in Qinshui basin in Shanxi province.

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

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