SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Houma Tongsheng Yitong Natural Gas plans to build a 500,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day coalbed methane liquefaction plant at Houma in Shanxi province, a local government official said on Wednesday.

The company obtained approval from the Shanxi Development and Reform Commission in early 2013 and has begun preliminary works on the new unit, according to the official from the municipal government in Houma.

The coalbed methane feedstock will be supplied via the Jinchang-Houma coalbed methane pipeline and the Linfen-Changzhi gas pipeline, the official said.

Other facilities at the same site include a LNG-refuelling station, a refuelling station for compressed natural gas and two 5,000cbm LNG storage tanks.

Houma Tongsheng Yitong Natural Gas Co has the franchise right on natural gas in Houma city and is largely engaged in businesses such as city gas supply and the retailing of natural gas equipment.
