SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shaanxi Lvyuan Natural Gas plans to conduct trial runs at its 1m cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Yulin in Shaanxi province on 25 January, a company source said on Tuesday.
The company is planning to begin commercial supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the plant on 31 January, the source said.
The plant will mainly process natural gas supplied from PetroChina’s Changqing Oilfield, and LNG outputs will be distributed in the areas east of Shaanxi such as Shanxi, Hebei, Henan, Shandong, Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, the source said.
The plant is equipped with two 5,000cbm storage tanks for LNG outputs.
The company will buy 200 LNG-fuelled trucks for delivery and 40 of them are in service now, the source added.
Shaanxi Lvyuan Natural Gas is building a separate 1m cbm/day LNG plant at another site in Yulin and a 500,000cbm/day plant in Hanzhong city, which are expected to come on line in December 2013 and April 2014 respectively.
The company is also planning to build a 3m cbm/day liquefaction project at Yan’an in Shaanxi, with the phase one project to come on stream in late 2014, the source added.
Shaanxi Lvyuan Natural Gas, a subsidiary of Shaanxi Jinyuan Group, is largely engaged in the processing and distribution of natural gas and in the construction of gas-related projects.
