Report summary

Facing a dramatic slowdown in Chinese gas demand and a supply glut, China’s NOCs are using three levers to optimise supply and minimise losses. Firstly, restricting domestic capex in more expensive projects. Second, PetroChina will hold pipeline imports down to Take or Pay levels. Finally, all three NOCs will seek to maximise contracted LNG volumes into the domestic market, particularly as delivered prices look competitive against City Gate tariffs.
