SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Chinese firm Dingfu Clean Energy Development plans to start building a 700,000 tonne/year gas liquefaction plant at Dazhou in Sichuan province in 2013, a company source said on Thursday.

The project will be built in two phases, and is expected to come on stream in 2014, the source said.

Natural gas will be supplied by PetroChina’s Southwest Oil & Gasfield, and outputs of liquefied natural gas (LNG) are expected to be distributed at Ankai Bus’ proposed LNG-refuelling stations, the source explained.

Ankai Bus, also a project investor, plans to build 50 LNG-refuelling stations in Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Hunan, Hubei and Shaanxi provinces, the source added.

Together with the LNG plant and LNG-refuelling stations, the company also plans to build a production base capable of manufacturing 3,000 clean energy vehicles and to build related storage facilities, which will cost a total of yuan (CNY) 1.44bn ($230m), the source went on to add.

Dazhou-based Dingfu Clean Energy Development, co-funded by Ankai Bus, Anhui Investment Holdings and a natural person, is largely engaged in the investment and construction of clean energy vehicles and LNG facilities.
