China gas and power month in brief: October 2016

China gas and power month in brief: October 2016

Report summary

China's gas market went on a roller-coaster ride again in September. While overall gas demand picked up by a mild 11%, pipe imports surged by 58% on the back of a 50% contraction in August. LNG imports in September continued to perform strongly, nearly doubling the volume last year. Corporate activities remained relatively quiet, except for PetroChina's plan to increase gas sales prices in expectation of a harsh winter. Elsewhere, the Chinese government aims to cool down the coal-fired power construction frenzy, ramp-down subsidies for renewables and target the pricing of gas storage to further gas sector reform.
