China Expects LNG Receiving Capacity To Reach 100MM Tonnes by 2025

China's liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving capacity is expected to rise 8.6 percent a year to 100 million tonnes by 2025, China's state planner said, as the country ramps up investment to support use of the cleaner fuel.

Storage capacity of natural gas, including LNG, is forecast to rise 17 percent a year from 2015 to 2025 to reach 40 billion cubic metres (bcm), the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said on Wednesday on its website.

The NDRC also expects pipeline capacity for natural gas imports to rise 7.6 percent a year from 2015 to 2025 to hit 150 bcm.

The world's top consumer of oil and coal, China has embarked on a huge investment programme to expand its LNG and pipeline infrastructure.

The state planner recently said it would more than double the country's underground natural gas storage sites and encourage companies to buy LNG and build import terminals in an effort to counter climate change and fight pollution.

China's oil and gas pipelines are expected to total 169,000 kms (105,000 miles) by 2020 and 240,000 kms by 2025, the NDRC said.

China will also accelerate construction of the second phase of its strategic oil reserves and push forward construction of the third phase, the document said.

China had 33.25 million tonnes of crude oil in its strategic reserves, equivalent to 243 million barrels, by mid 2016, the government said in April.
