SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Huaxin Energy Development is expected to conduct trial runs at its 200,000 cubic metre/day liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Qujing in Yunnan province in January 2013, a company source said on Thursday.

The liquefaction plant will consume coal gas supplied by a local coke plant, the source added.

Around 70% of its LNG output is likely to be sold to China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC), the country’s largest LNG importer, the source said. The remaining stocks will be distributed in the domestic market in Qujing, the source added.

“There are two additional coke plants, each with a capacity of 100m tonne/year, currently under planning in Qujing,” the source said.

“We may consider building more liquefaction trains to process their coke gas,” the source added.

Huaxin Energy Development is largely engaged in the production of LNG from coal gas and coal-based fuel oil.
