SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xi’an Qinggang Jieneng Technology is expected to start up a 300,000 cubic metre (cbm)/day gas liquefaction plant at Weinan in Shaanxi province in 2014, a company source said on Thursday.

The plant is the first phase of a 600,000cbm/day project, the source said, adding that the construction timeline for the second phase has yet to be determined, the source said.

The project will mainly process coalbed methane (CBM) supplied by PetroChina Coalbed Methane, the source said.

The company plans to build refuelling stations for liquefied natural gas (LNG) at the same time, and is likely to distribute LNG at these stations, the source said.

Meanwhile, Xi’an Qinggang is also building a 3m cbm/day liquefaction facility at Ordos in Inner Mongolia autonomous regions.

The Ordos project will consume natural gas supplied from PetroChina’s Changqing oilfield and the start-up schedule in unknown, the source added.

Xi’an Qinggang Jieneng Technology, a subsidiary of Kunlun Energy, is largely engaged in the utilisation of natural gas and associated resources from oil and gasfields.
