SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shanxi Gas Industry Group plans to start up a 1.2m cubic metre/day gas liquefaction plant at Lvliang in Shanxi province, north China, in late 2013, a source close to the company said on Monday.

The plant will process coal-bed methane from local supplier(s) in Shanxi, according to the source from Shanxi Guoyun LNG Development, a subsidiary of Shanxi Gas Industry.

LNG (liquefied natural gas) outputs are expected to be mainly distributed at Shanxi-based LNG-refuelling stations which are operated or will be built by Shanxi Guoyun, the source added.

Shanxi Guoyun currently runs four LNG-refuelling stations in Shanxi and is expected to bring on line another four in 2013, the source said.

Shanxi Gas Industry Group is largely engaged in the investment, construction and operation of gas projects.
