China gas and power month in brief: April 2016

Report summary

Is Chinese gas demand now on a sustained recovery from the low levels of growth seen in late 2014 and 2015? The key word here is 'sustained'. Demand (and consequently imports) looks a lot healthier this year, but colder temperatures have been a feature of this. A shot of economic stimulus and rising oil prices have also helped. So for now it really is too early to tell if a resurgence in demand can be sustained. Elsewhere in this Month in Brief we also look at the uptick in power demand, consider coal/gas competition in power and question why China has been slow to join the FSRU bandwagon.
