Yuntianhua halts output amid gas shortages
    2017-12-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A MAJOR chemical producer based in the southwestern province of Yunnan has halted production of synthetic ammonia and urea due to natural gas shortages as China’s winter heating crisis deepens.

Yunnan Yuntianhua Co., which lists shares on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, stopped a 500,000-ton-per-year production plant of ammonia and an 800,000-ton-a-year urea production line at its Yunnan Shuifu subsidiary, the firm said in a statement yesterday.

“Gas producers have suspended gas supplies to major industrial consumers in southwestern regions. Our Shuifu plant will temporarily halt production of two chemicals as a result,” the company said.

Yuntianhua, which halted production Monday, will book a 25 million yuan (US$3.78 million) loss due to the disruption. The company does not expect to resume production before Dec. 31.

The stoppage comes as at least one natural gas producer has diverted supplies of the fuel to China’s north for residential heating use.

State radio reported last week that PetroChina Co. has sent at least 5 million cubic meters of gas from the southern provinces of Zhejiang, Fujian and Guangdong to help relieve shortages in northern China.

A PetroChina official familiar with the plan said as much as 10 million cubic meters has been diverted north.

PetroChina’s move is a response to instructions from the National Development & Reform Commission, which called on local governments and gas suppliers to combat gas shortages in the north.
