SINGAPORE (ICIS)--PetroChina’s subsidiary China Natural Gas Corp plans to conduct trial runs at its 1m cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Guangyuan in Sichuan province in early March, a company source said on Friday.
The plant is currently undergoing tests and will process natural gas supplied by PetroChina’s Southwest Oil & Gas Field, the source said.
Construction for a second-phase project with a capacity of 2m cbm/day will commence after the start-up of the phase-one plant, according to the China Natural Gas Corp’s website.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) output will be distributed by the company’s 20 LNG-refuelling stations, with additional volumes supplied to industrial and residential users in Sichuan province, the source said.
China Natural Gas Corp plans to purchase 150 tank trucks to transport its LNG output. The company currently has more than 20 trucks in service, the source said, adding that there are plans to work with third-party logistics firms to provide LNG delivery.
China Natural Gas Corp is largely engaged in gas exploration, the investment and operation of city gas, LNG and compressed natural gas (CNG) projects.
