China's LNG Imports in Jan-Feb Up 2.3%

China’s LNG imports during January-February totalled 11.13mn metric tons, up 2.3% yr/yr, according to customs data published on March 23. The customs department did not provide data for January and February separately. Meanwhile, China’s pipeline gas imports were 6.67mn mt, up 3.6% yr/yr, the data showed.

Chinese gas imports have taken a hit this year because of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, with yr/yr growth slowing down significantly. In January last year, Chinese LNG imports grew 27.8% yr/yr and in February they grew 9.7% yr/yr.
