Delhi, New Delhi, India, 2007/05/02 - As Shanghai launches a major LNG project with Malaysia, it’s expected that the supply of natural gas will improve in the city in near future.
Shanghai has launched a key energy supply project for transmitting LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) from Malaysia to the economic hub in east China for over 25 years, as reported by the news agency Xinhua, published in DAILY EXPRESS NEWS on 27 January 2007.
The project will supply approximately 1.1 Million Tons per year in the initial three years and from 2012 it will rise to 3 Million Tons per year.
National Development & Reform Commission of China had approved this project in December 2006, said Xinhua. This project, together with the west to east gas pipeline of China and the East China Sea gas project will likely help in fulfilling the demands of energy for Shanghai, improving the efficiency of energy, and cutting the emissions, National Development & Reform Commission’s spokesman said.
Gas market in China looks promising owing to the increasing proportion of natural gas there. Natural gas is expected to completely replace the manufactured gas in near future. Therefore, steady development is foreseen in the LNG – natural gas’ complementary energy.
West east Gas Transmission Project’s operation is going to strongly affect the prices, demand and supply of other energies, and this will eventually transform the energy market structure in China.
Investment will be the key for the further growth of the gas industry in China. Huge investments will spur growth in all areas of the industry namely, marketing, development, transmission, and production.
