SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Energy Xinwen Mining Group is expected to start supplying liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its liquefaction plant at Ordos in Inner Mongolia autonomous region in the middle of January, a company source said on Tuesday.
The company has been conducting trial runs at its 80,000 tonne/year liquefaction plant since 1 January, the source said.
The plant mainly processes coal gas supplied from the company’s 1.92m tonne/year coke plant at the same site, and it is equipped with a 5,000 cubic metre (cbm) storage tank for LNG outputs, the source said.
The company plans to build two other LNG projects at the same site, which will bring the total liquefaction capacity to 300,000 tonnes/year.
However, the specific capacity and construction timeline for the planned projects were not determined.
LNG outputs will be mainly distributed to southern areas in China, added the source.
Shandong Energy Xinwen Mining Group is largely engaged in coal businesses.
