SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Juchang New Energy is expected to begin supplying liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the domestic market from its Baotou plant in late March, a company source said on Thursday.
The company has achieved on-spec LNG production at its 200,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Baotou in Inner Mongolia autonomous region in early March, the source said.
The company also plans to build a second-phase project with a liquefaction capacity of 300,000cbm/day at the same site, with construction schedule depending on sales at the first project, the source added.
The plant will consume natural gas supplied from PetroChina’s Changqing oilfield, and is equipped with a 4,500cbm storage tank.
LNG output will be mainly sold to Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei and the transportation will be carried out by third-party logistics companies, added the source.
Ordos-based Juchang New Energy is mostly engaged in LNG production, distribution, transportation and storage.
