Global gas markets long-term outlook - China - H1 2016

Global gas markets long-term outlook - China - H1 2016

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. However, despite these positive indicators, the lost momentum in the Chinese gas market through 2015, combined with reduced levels of domestic investment and lower GDP growth, is again resulting in a lower long-term outlook for gas in China.
