SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shaanxi Lvyuan Natural Gas shut its 1m cubic metre/day gas liquefaction plant at Yulin in Shaanxi province early Friday morning because of a technical glitch at the unit, a company source said.

The company is expected to restart the plant on 13 June, the source said.

“We will stop supplying LNG [liquefied natural gas] outputs to the domestic market from 8 June as a result of low inventory levels,” the source said.

The plant also had an outage in late May for the same reason.

Shaanxi Lvyuan Natural Gas, a subsidiary of Shaanxi Jinyuan Group, is largely engaged in the processing and distribution of natural gas, as well as in the construction of gas-related projects.
