SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Xineng Natural Gas is expected to begin liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply to the domestic market in the middle of July from its 300,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day plant, a company source said on Friday.
The company is still testing the Ji’nan plant in Shandong province, the source said.
The plant will mainly process natural gas supplied via PetroChina’s Hebei-Nanjing gas pipeline, and is equipped with a 5,000cbm storage tank, the source said.
The company has also bought 10 tank trucks for LNG delivery, and may contract third-party logistics firms during peak business periods.
Commencement of a planned second-phase project with a liquefaction capacity of 600,000cbm/day is subject to the operation of the existing plant, added the source.
Shandong Xineng Natural Gas is largely engaged in LNG and compressed natural gas (CNG) processing and sales, construction and operation of CNG/LNG-refuelling stations.
