SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Ordos Juchang New Energy plans to conduct trial runs at its new 200,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, in late 2012 or early 2013, a company source said on Wednesday.

The plant will use natural gas that will be largely supplied by PetroChina’s Changqing Oilfield, the source said.

Ordos Juchang New Energy has also built a 4,500cbm storage tank for the plant’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) output, the source added.

The Chinese producer will distribute the LNG output nationwide in China at the beginning, with plans to supply its LNG-refuelling stations in Ordos, which are still in a preliminary stage, the source said.

The company is planning to build a second-phase project with a capacity of 300,000cbm/day at the same site, the source said, adding that construction will begin after the first plant comes onstream.

Ordos Juchang New Energy is largely engaged in the production, distribution, transportation and storage of LNG.
