Report summary

The gloom surrounding the Chinese gas market in 2015 has been replaced with cautious optimism as a recovery in the oil price, lower domestic city gate prices and a series of national and local policies aimed at supporting gas have combined to improve the outlook through the mid-term at least. Year-on-year, official data is showing Chinese gas demand from December 2015 through to April 2016 up by 18%, while LNG imports over the same period increased by more than 20%.
