SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Chinese firm Yongjing Sanxia Natural Gas has halted supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) since 22 November following its unit shutdown, a company source said on Thursday.
The company shut its 200,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day liquefaction plant at Yongjing county in Gansu province, northwest China, as a result of falling natural gas supply from PetroChina through Sebei-Xining-Lanzhou gas pipeline, the source explained.
They were not sure about the restart schedule, the source added.
Yongjing Sanxia Natural Gas had been running its LNG plant at about 75% capacity before the shutdown.
The company mainly sells LNG outputs to surrounding markets such as Sichuan province and it is planning LNG distribution at local refuelling stations, the company source said.
Yongjing Sanxia Natural Gas is largely engaged in natural gas supply and sales of gas appliances.
