SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Hong Kong-listed China Resources Gas is expected to start up a 300,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Changchun in Jilin province, northeast China, in June 2013, a company source said on Tuesday.

The company is building a 4,500cbm storage tank, and will buy 50 trucks for LNG delivery, the source added.

The company also plans to build a phase two project, with capacity and construction schedule yet to be confirmed, the source went on to add.

China Resources Gas, China’s biggest city gas operator, is largely engaged in the investment and operation of city gas business such as piped gas and vehicle fuel and sales of gas appliances.
