SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Baotou Chuangmei New Energy plans to begin commercial supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its 200,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day plant in early August, a company source said on Friday.
The company has been conducting test runs at the plant in Baotou, Inner Mongolia, since early May, the source said.
The plant will mainly consume natural gas supplied via PetroChina’s Changqing Oilfield-Hohhot gas pipeline, and is equipped with a 2,500cbm storage tank, the source said.
The company is planning to build a second phase of the project at the same site, bringing up the total liquefaction capacity to 500,000cbm/day.
Baotou Chuangmei also plans to build two LNG-refuelling stations nearby, the source said.
LNG output will be distributed at these stations, with surplus to be sold in northeast China.
The company will purchase four LNG-fuelled tank trucks for delivery, and may buy more in the future, depending on transportation demand, added the source.
Baotou Chuangmei New Energy is largely engaged in LNG processing, liquefaction plant operation and the promotion of LNG utilisation facilities and technology.
