SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Aosite Energy is expected to start up an 80,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Ji’ning in Shandong province in early 2014, a company source said on Friday.
The plant is the first phase of a 1.08 million cubic metre/day liquefaction project at the same site, the source said.
The company started to build the phase one and two units in July 2013 and is expected to bring on stream the 500,000cbm/day second unit in the first half of 2015, the source said.
Two 5,000cbm storage tanks will also be built at the same time.
However, the planning for the third-phase plant, with a capacity of 500,000cbm/day, will commence after the start-up of the second unit, the source said.
The whole project will mainly process natural gas supplied via PetroChina’s West-East gas pipelines.
Details on liquefied natural gas (LNG) sales and delivery were not confirmed as the project is still at early stage, the source said, adding that outputs may be supplied to refueling stations.
Shandong Aosite Energy is largely engaged in the investment and development of gas liquefaction facilities, and also provides LNG-related technical and consulting services.
