SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Huagang Gas plans to commence operations at a 500,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Renqiu in Hebei province in October 2014, a company source said on Wednesday.
The company began construction of the plant on 16 September 2013, the source said.
The plant will be equipped with a 5,000 cbm liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tank and will mainly process natural gas delivered through the second Shaanxi-Beijing gas pipeline, the source said.
LNG output from the plant will be largely distributed in Hebei province and neighbouring markets.
Huagang Gas is currently running a 300,000 cbm/day gas liquefaction plant at the same site, the source said.
The company also plans to build two coalbed methane liquefaction plants, with a capacity of 2m cubic metre (mcm)/day each, at Ulanqab in Inner Mongolia’s autonomous region and at Jincheng in Shanxi province respectively, the source said.
The planning of these two plants are still in the preliminary stages, added the source.
Huagang Gas, a joint venture of PetroChina’s Kunlun Energy and Huabei Oilfield, is largely engaged in the supply and distribution of piped gas, LNG and compressed natural gas (CNG), as well as in the construction and installation of gas transmission facilities.
