SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Inner Mongolia Aerospace Energy is expected to start up a 500,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Bayannur in Inner Mongolia autonomous region in late 2013, a company source said on Monday.

The plant will mainly process natural gas supplied from PetroChina’s Changqing oilfield via the Changqing oilfield-Hohhot parallel gas pipeline, the source said.

LNG outputs will be initially distributed by a subsidiary company, Shiyi New Energy, the source said.

The company also plans to build refuelling stations for LNG and compressed natural gas (CNG) in the future, with no specific timeline yet, added the source.

Inner Mongolia Aerospace Energy, mainly funded by China Aerospace Science & Industry Corp, is largely engaged in the construction and operation of natural gas projects and other related industries.

Shiyi New Energy is currently running a 100,000cbm/day LNG plant at Baotou in Inner Mongolia.
