SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xinyuan Natural Gas is ready to sell liquefied natural gas (LNG) after conducting trial runs at its 300,000 cubic metre/day (cbm/day) liquefaction plant since 12 October, a company source said on Monday.
The company is running the unit at Baotou in Inner Mongolia at 50% capacity, and is gradually increasing the utilisation rate.
LNG output is being offered at yuan (CNY) 3,600/tonne ($574/tonne) ex-works (EXW), targeting consumers and traders in northeast China, the source said.
The company also works with third-party logistics companies to provide delivery services, the source added.
The plant is equipped with a 4,500cbm storage tank and will mainly process natural gas supplied by Chinese oil and gas giant PetroChina’s Changqing oil field.
Baotou-based Xinyuan Natural Gas largely engages LNG production and distribution.
