Gas replacing coal in southern Xinjiang

The Tarim Oilfield in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region had sent 33.2 billion cubic meters of natural gas to the southern part of the region by May, benefiting 4 million local residents.This amount of natural gas can replace 43.16 million tonnes of standard coal, which is equivalent to a reduction of 29.88 million tonnes of harmful emissions, said PetroChina Tarim Oilfield Company Saturday.A natural gas network around the Tarim Basin has been built with four main pipelines and 19 branch lines with total length of more than 2,400 km in operation since 2013.As one of China's lar

China's natural gas apparent consumption up 11.4 pct in the first 4 months

Chinese demand for gas, LNG 'almost infinite'

China's impressive investments in renewable energy and electric vehicles have led some anti-fossil fuel activists, as well as some economists, to warn that new pipelines and LNG plants in Canada could become stranded assets.The fear is that China will decarbonize to such an extent that it won't need Canadian oil or natural gas.But Yao Li, CEO of Chinese energy consulting firm SIA Energy, said May 21 at the annual Canada Gas and LNG Conference that China's demand for LNG is “almost infinite.”China's shift from coal to natural gas to provide power will require a substantial increase in LNG impor

China not signing deals to buy U.S. crude oil: Enterprise CEO

Chinese companies looking to sign long-term agreements to buy crude oil from U.S. oil exporters have virtually disappeared, the chief executive of Enterprise Products Partners LP said on Tuesday.The United States and China have been embroiled in an increasingly bitter trade dispute for nearly a year, and it escalated recently with the U.S. imposition of 25% tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods.The trade war has all but shut down shipments of U.S. crude to China, and it is unlikely Chinese buyers will sign long-term offtake agreements with U.S. crude exporters right now, Enterprise CEO Jim

What China’s appetite for gas could mean for the world

China’s rapidly growing market is without doubt one of the most coveted destinations for exporters of liquefied natural gas. In pursuit of wealth and power, LNG producers from the four corners of the globe – the rolling farmlands of Pennsylvania, the deserts of Qatar, the rainforests of Papua New Guinea and the frigid waters of Russia – are all keen to compete for a slice of the pie. However, contrary to popular belief, China might not end up becoming the LNG-guzzling giant many have prophesied. This could have a major impact on the global market as a supply glut might lead to a collapse of LN

Increased Chinese Tariffs on American LNG Could Dampen Investment, Report Says

China will more than double its punitive tariffs on liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports from the U.S. starting June 1, as Beijing hits back at Washington’s escalation of the bilateral trade dispute.The additional levies on U.S. LNG will be raised to 25% from the current 10%, as one of over 4,500 product lines that will be subject to tax increases at three different margins, according to a Monday statement by the Tariff Policy Committee of the State Council, China’s cabinet.The tariff hike comes in response to Washington on Friday further raising its additional tariffs on $200 billion worth of

China's Ramping Up Of Tariffs On US LNG Means Nothing, Everything

China's decision to hike import duties on U.S. LNG is a move that means very little for the market in the short term, but it has the potential to deliver outsized consequences the longer the levies remain in place.As part of its latest round of retaliatory tariffs on U.S. imports, Beijing increased the duty on LNG shipments from 10% to 25%.This will make it even more uneconomic for Chinese buyers to purchase LNG cargoes from the United States. The 10% tariff put in place last year has already devastated the trade, with China's imports of the fuel dropping sharply.China imported 25 U.S. LNG car

Chinese Oil Majors Backtrack On Pledge To Buy Iranian Oil

It was a question that just as recently as last week was still undecided. Would Beijing kowtow to Washington’s demand that it stop importing Iranian oil at the start of May after the 180-day import waiver period ended? The answer, at least for now, is that Beijing will comply.Oil majors Sinopec Group and CNPC, China’s two top oil refiners, are reportedly skipping purchases of Iranian oil for loading in May, Reuters reported on Friday, citing people familiar with the deal. On April 22, President Trump surprised oil markets when said he would end 180-day Iranian oil import waivers put in place i

Natural Gas Consumption Up 10% in China

ccording to the preliminary estimate, the consumption of natural gas in China exceeded 27 million cubic meters in 2018, registering a YOY increase of more than 10%, said a report.The growing Chinese economy and stricter environmental protection policies drive the growth of natural gas consumption in China. In 2018, the Chinese government introduced several environmental protection policies to further prevent and control atmospheric pollution and replace coal with natural gas in key areas, which pushed up natural gas consumption in China.The market survey by ResearchAndMarkets shows that in 201

Meeting the challenge of China’s dash for gas

The People’s Republic of China’s switch from coal to gas, to decarbonize its energy mix and tackle pollution under its Blue Sky policy, requires importing a lot more gas. It needs substantial investment in liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals, gas storage, and for more and upgraded pipelines to handle and distribute the gas.As Chinese gas imports grow, the safety challenge for pipeline operators will also rise. Mr Zhou, a manager from a major Chinese pipeline operator said: ”While China is enhancing pipeline interconnection, we need to pay high attention to safety management with zero toleran
