SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Chinese firm Ordos Xingxing Energy plans to shut its 1m cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Ordos in Inner Mongolia on 1 July for a routine turnaround, a company source said on Tuesday.

The turnaround will last for 20-25 days and the company will halt spot supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) during the shutdown as a result of low inventory levels, the source said.

“We will notify our clients in advance of the shutdown and will purchase LNG from other suppliers in order to fulfil contract commitments,” the source added.

Ordos Xingxing Energy is largely engaged in energy development, LNG production and sales. The company commenced operation of the yuan (CNY) 360m ($58.7m) LNG plant in November 2008.
