China Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group is likely to start its coal-to-liquids (CTL) project at Ningdong Energy-Chemical Base in northwest Chinaâ€™s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region within the next 12 months.An official with the Coal Chemical Industry Company under Shenhua Ningxia Coal, Jia Zhenyun, says progress on the project has accelerated recentlyHe says the company is still in discussions on the projectâ€™s feasibility study, adding that negotiations had been going slowly because of concerns over technology and other aspects.In April this year, Royal Dutch Shell Group announced it would postpone the Ningdong CTL project, however, Jia Zhenyun says Shenhua and Shell had stopped negotiations as early as in 2008 and Shellâ€™s decision didnâ€™t affect the projectâ€™s progress.Chinaâ€™s National Development and Reform Commission in 2008 called a halt to all CTL projects, except the indirect CTL project in Ningdong and the direct CTL project in Ordos, Inner Mongolia.- News courtesy of China Coal Monthly/China Coal Resource en.sxcoal.com
