ICIS launches a comprehensive report covering the Chinese LNG import market

12 August 2014
ICIS, a leading provider of market intelligence for China gas markets, has launched a new report providing China liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply and demand analysis for the country’s seven major regions and provinces.

China’s LNG market is becoming increasingly attractive to international players due to the introduction of the country’s gas import source diversification policy. With this import liberalisation, market experts are expecting a rapid growth in LNG imports in the coming five years, with levels likely to exceed South Korea’s by 2018.

Taking advantage of recent developments, privately owned enterprises in China are keen to maximise their first-mover advantage by investing and building new LNG import terminals.

The ICIS China LNG Supply/Demand & Investment Opportunities Report provides detailed information on the LNG demand outlook for China – broken down by 24 key provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities. In addition, it provides important information on domestic policies, infrastructure developments and other key factors for consideration when making investment-related decisions.

What makes the report unique is that the analysis is broken down by sub-regional markets. We’ve structured the ICIS China LNG Supply/Demand & Investment Opportunities Report this way, because regional differences in market dynamics and infrastructure commonly creates complexity when dealing with the Chinese LNG industry, says Rui Qui Wang, senior analyst for the gas industry chain at ICIS. 

The recently launched report gives you all the information you need to:

  • Gain accurate and detailed insights into the Chinese LNG import market
  • Identify and evaluate potential LNG investment opportunities in China
  • Know which provinces or ports to target based on the country’s consumption and distribution network
  • Understand domestic policies, regional dynamics and what they mean for investors
