Sinopec Ramps Up Winter Gas Supplies

Chinese state-run Sinopec has ramped up gas supplies to the domestic market during the ongoing winter season running from November 1 to March 15, it said on December 30. 

The company supplied 9.35bn m3 of gas during the November 1-December 29 period, up 19% year on year. Sinopec said it had expanded LNG imports as well as hiked local production to keep the market well supplied. 

Sinopec last month said it planned to supply a total of 20bn m3 of natural gas during the winter season, up 5.3% yr/yr.
