SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Group is expected to start up an 8bn bcm/year coal gasification project at Changji in Xinjiang by 2015, a local government official said on Wednesday.
The company has finished feasibility research on the project, and may expand the project’s capacity to 30bcm/year in the long run, according to an official from the commercial bureau in Urumqi.
The project will mainly process coal supplied from the Zhundong coal mine in Xinjiang, and water will be delivered from the 500 Reservoir in Urumqi, the official said.
Natural gas output is expected to be distributed through Sinopec’s Xinjiang-Guangdong-Zhejiang gas pipeline, which is under construction, added the official.
Company sources could not be immediately reached for comments.
