  • Energy Companies

    Gas:

    CNPC dominates the gas sector. In 2015, it produced around 95 bcm of natural gas, accounting for around 75% of the total domestic production. CNPC reported a proven reserve base of natural gas of 570 bcm at the end of 2015. CNPC is the largest gas pipeline contractor and...

  • Energy Supply

    Gas:

    Production has been growing at the fast pace of around 12%/year, on average, since 2000, which has made China the world's 6th largest producer (135 bcm in 2015). In 2015 domestic production covered 71% of the consumption. Four areas are particularly rich in gas: Tarim, Shaanxi-Gansu-...

  • Energy Prices

    Gas:

    Gas prices are higher for industries than for households, with both rates increasing at a similar pace (about 10% annually) over the last decade and stabilizing since 2013. In 2015, gas prices for households were US3.85c/kWh and for industry US4.74c/kWh. NDRC plans to reduce end-user gas prices...

  • Energy Consumption

    Primary consumption per capita was around 2.5 toe/cap in 2015 (more than threefold India's per capita consumption and equal to 77% of the EU average).

    China's statistical agency indicated in 2015 that coal consumption in China has been underestimated since 2000, especially in recent years...

  • Issues & Prospects

    The main priorities are to increase the production and, above all, diversify the supply sources in order to enhance China's energy independence, and to continue the reform of the electricity sector.

    The building of the new China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) - a network of roads,...
