SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Yucheng Huayi Natural Gas Development is expected to achieve on-spec production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) at its Dezhou plant in Shandong province in early June, a company source said on Thursday.
The plant, designed with a liquefaction capacity of 50,000 cbm/day, is the first phase of a 1.85 million cubic metre (mcm)/day liquefaction project at the site, the source said.
A second-phase project with a capacity of 600,000 cbm/day is expected to commence operation in late 2013, the source said, adding that the 1.2 mcm/day third-phase project is still in the preliminary stage.
The first two units, construction of which started in April 2012, will consume natural gas supplied through PetroChina’s Heibei-Nanjing gas pipeline, and gas supplies to the third unit are not determined, the source said.
The three projects will be equipped with a 20cbm, 5,000cbm and 10,000cbm storage tank respectively, added the source.
LNG output from the projects will be mainly distributed in Shandong province and markets nearby, the source said, adding that the company will set up a logistics company for LNG delivery.
Shandong Yucheng Huayi Natural Gas Development is largely engaged in the construction and operation of gas liquefaction facilities, and refuelling stations for LNG and compressed natural gas (CNG).
