SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xinjiang Kingho Energy is expected to produce pipeline-quality natural gas at its 1.38 billion cubic metre (bcm)/year coal-to-gas (CTG) project at Ili in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region in June, a company source said on Thursday.

The company expects the CTG project to achieve full-capacity production in late 2013, the source added.

Xinjiang Kingho also plans to build a 5.5bcm/year CTG project in Ili through four phases of construction, the source said.

The producer has signed a purchase and sale agreement with PetroChina, according to the source.

“All gas output from the project will be delivered through PetroChina’s second West-East gas pipeline and the planned third West-East gas pipeline,” the source said.

Xinjiang Kingho is a subsidiary of China Kingho Energy Group, which focuses largely on coal exploration, coking and the production of coal-based natural gas and chemical products.
