SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Chinese firm Shaanxi Lvyuan Natural Gas plans to trial run its 1m cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Yulin in Shaanxi province, northwest China, in December, a company source said on Friday.

The yuan (CNY) 386m($62m) project is undergoing final checks on gas pipelines and electricity facilities, the source said.

The project is equipped with two 5,000cbm storage tanks for liquefied natural gas (LNG) output, the source added.

The company is also building a separate 1m cbm/day liquefaction plant at Yulin and a 500,000cbm/day facility at Hanzhong in Shaanxi, the source said.

The three plants will all consume natural gas supplied by PetroChina’s Changqing Oilfield, and outputs will be sold mainly in Shaanxi, east, south and central China.

Shaanxi Lvyuan Natural Gas is mainly engaged in the processing and distribution of natural gas and in the construction of gas-related projects.
