Firms asked to cut gas supply to some sectors
    2017-December-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE country’s top economic planner said yesterday it had asked national energy majors CNPC, Sinopec and CNOOC to cut natural gas supplies to some industries by a total of about 15 million cubic meters per day.

The move comes amid a shortage of gas in the world’s No. 2 economy after an unprecedented campaign to help clean up the environment by switching millions of households to natural gas from coal for heating.

The government has previously said that supply to industry would be curbed, but yesterday’s announcement — covering makers of products such as chemicals, methanol and fertilizer — gives an indication of the targeted size of such cuts.

Meng Wei, spokeswoman for the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), also said at a briefing yesterday that the government had coordinated with the three major energy companies to increase supplies by raising gas output, boosting imports and speeding up infrastructure construction.

She added that China planned to purchase 3.5 billion cubic meters of liquefied natural gas in overseas markets in addition to its original plan to import 24.5 billion cubic meters over the winter.(SD-Agencies)
