SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Ordos Huida LNG has shut its 300,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Ordos in Inner Mongolia on 23 December in view of unstable operations, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company achieved on-spec production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on 20 December and outputs were priced at yuan (CNY) 4,000/tonne ($641/tonne) on an ex-works basis, the source said.

The shutdown is expected to last for about a week but the company will continue to supply the market with stocks during the period, the source said.

The company has built a 1,750cbm storage tank at the same site, added the source.

The newly-built plant mainly process natural gas supplied from PetroChina’s Changqing Oil & Gasfield via the Changqing-Hohhot gas pipeline, the source said.

Ordos Huida LNG is largely engaged in LNG production, storage and distribution.
