SINGAPORE(ICIS)--China’s Shanxi Ruiyang CBM is expected to achieve on-spec production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) at its liquefaction plant in Jinzhong, Shanxi province in late 2013 or early 2014, a source close to the company said on Monday.

The plant is designed to produce 66,000 tonnes/year (about 300,000 cubic metres/day) of liquefied coal-bed methane (CBM), according to the source from Shanxi Guorui New Energy, one of the company’s shareholders.

The company is jointly invested by Shanxi Guorui New Energy, Yangquan Coal Industry Group and DKT Energy Technology Sichuan, the source said.

CBM will be supplied by Yangquan Coal Industry Group from coal mines nearby. LNG distribution is not finalized yet as the project is still in its preliminary stage, the source added.

Shanxi Guorui New Energy is largely engaged in the development of natural gas and CBM.
