CONSUMPTION CONTINUES TO GROW

China imported a total 7.56 million mt of natural gas in May, comprising LNG and pipeline natural gas, up 2.3% from 7.39 million mt a year earlier. The growth was mainly driven by stronger LNG imports during the month, the customs data showed.

On a month-on-month basis, May natural gas imports were down 1.2% from 7.65 million mt in April.

Over the first five months of this year, China imported a total 39.43 million mt of natural gas, up 13.8% year on year, the data said.

The government targets to reduce air pollution and move to cleaner burning fuels exemplified by its Blue Sky policy and the five-year plan is expected to continue to drive the country's gas consumption higher.
