SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Huineng Coal Chemical plans to start up its two billion cubic metre (2 bcm)/year coal-to-gas (CTG) project at Ordos in Inner Mongolia in June next year, a company source said on Friday.
The company has been building the plant since June 2010, the source said.
In the second phase of the project, the capacity will be increased by 6bcm/year, the source said, adding that the expansion is expected to be completed in two years.
Coal will be supplied by the company’s parent Huineng Coal Power.
About half of the natural gas produced at the Ordos plant will be liquefied and supplied to refueling stations for liquefied natural gas in north China.
The company plans to build 200 LNG refuelling stations in the region in the next three years, the source said.
The other half gas output from Ordos will be distributed through the Changqing oilfield-Hohhot-Zhangjiakou gas pipeline.
The company has no plan to buy LNG tank trucks and is looking for third-party logistics companies for LNG delivery, the source said.
Huineng Coal Chemical is largely engaged in the construction and operation of CTG and LNG projects.
