2022-2023 China LNG Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2022, the geopolitical crisis continued influencing the global natural gas market as well as China’s domestic LNG market. On the one hand, the plummeted spot LNG import changed the domestic LNG market supply pattern, and on the other hand, the soaring oil and gas prices pushed up the import cost. The tight piped gas supply propped up the feedgas price, and high spot LNG price pinned terminal truck loading prices at highs. Propelled by those factors, China’s domestic LNG price remained buoyant at high levels throughout the year.

Facing the tight supply, high prices, public health event, and pressure from slowing down macroeconomy, China’s LNG sector faced challenges from the upstream suppliers to the downstream users. The demand was suppressed at lows, adding uncertainties to the short-term view of the LNG market. However, the LNG sector’s potential is still promising under the 14th Five-Year Plan and the 2030 carbon peak vision, and accordingly, new LNG plants and terminals were intensively commissioned against the bearish market atmosphere.

How long will this disordered market pattern continue? When will the LNG price come back to a normal level? What’s the future of China’s LNG import? SCI’s 2022-2023 China LNG Market Annual Report will explain with comprehensive analysis to reveal the challenges and opportunities in China’s LNG industry and foresee future new trends.
