SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shaanxi Changtian Natural Gas is expected to start up its 800,000 cubic metre/day gas liquefaction plant at Yulin in Shaanxi province in August this year, a company source said on Friday.

The company is also planning to build a second-phase project with a liquefaction capacity of 1.2 million cubic metres (mcm)/day at the same site, the source added.

A total of yuan (CNY) 447.3m ($72.4m) has been invested into building the two projects, the source said.

The two projects will mainly consume natural gas supplied from PetroChina’s Changqing oil and gas field in northwest China, according to the source.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) output from the plants will be distributed nationwide in China, the source said.

Shaanxi Changtian Natural Gas is largely engaged in the production, delivery and distribution of LNG.
