Annual Report Overview

2017–2018 China Natural Gas (Pipeline & Compressed) Market Annual Report


With an overview of the changes of China’s energy market structure, natural gas, as one kind of clean energy, has always attracted players’ attention. In 2017, all kinds of natural gas reform policies were frequently pushed out in China. "Coal-to-gas" policy brought about significant market effects. Investment in projects, such as natural gas power generation and distributed energy resource (DER), was getting warmer. The downstream demand increased greatly. As of H1, 2017, China's natural gas consumption volume grew over 15% from the first half of 2016. After its downturn in the past years, China’s natural gas market had finally begun to develop robustly. The optimistic momentum occurred.

According to the Notice on Opinion of Accelerating and Advancing the Utilization of Natural Gas issued by China’s National Development and Reform Committee (NDRC), natural gas will account for around 10% in the structure of primary energy consumption. It also promotes the development of subjects such as the underground gas storage depot and distributed energy resource (DER). It demonstrates the government’s determination in developing natural gas industry and also implies the coming rise period of natural gas market. It is predicted that China’s natural gas consumption volume will still grow at a rate of more than 10% in 2018. Meanwhile, even if China’s natural gas output will increase, the abundant natural gas demand will still rely on the import. It is estimated that China’s natural gas import volume will increase notably in 2018.
