Summary

China's gas demand has boomed through 2017. Winter demand will stretch China's gas supplies to the limit. While the national balance is tight, the balance in the highly seasonal north is even tighter. Critically, the area incorporating China's capital Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province (the BTH region, known in China as Jing-Jin-Ji) faces the highest risk of gas shortage. Policies are already in place to prioritise heating over industrial demand. Can LNG save China from a winter shortfall? ? In this report, we look at: China's gas supply-demand balance this winter Gas supply availability and risks in the BTH region Opportunities and constraints for LNG imports this winter.
