SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shanxi Coalbed Methane is expected to restart its 250,000 cubic metre/day gas liquefaction plant at Jincheng in Shanxi province on 31 May, a company source said on Monday.

The company shut the plant on 22 May as gas supply was halted because of a glitch in a related pipeline, the source said.

The plant had to shut days after it achieved on-spec LNG on 15 May and has yet to start supply to customers, the source said.

The Jincheng plant mainly consumes coalbed methane (CBM) supplied from a CBM block at Lizhuang County in Shanxi.

Shanxi Coalbed Methane, formerly known as Shanxi Energy Coalbed Methane (CBM) Investments Holdings, is a joint venture of Shanxi Energy Industries Group, Shanxi Coal Import & Export Group (SCIEG) and Shanxi International Electricity Group.
