China Plans to Boost Natural Gas Use to Reduce Pollution

BEIJING – China will incentivize the use of natural gas, especially in the highly polluted northern regions, aiming to source 15 percent of its total energy consumption from natural gas by 2030, the country’s National Development and Reform Commission said in a report on Wednesday.

The report outlines a bigger role for private capital in expanding China’s natural gas supply capacity, including construction of new gas pipelines and exploration projects abroad.

The plan aims to transform China’s current energy system into a cleaner one within the next 5 year by substituting coal with gas in heating systems, especially in highly polluted areas like Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.

On Wednesday, energy giant Sinopec announced it had reached a gas capacity of 6 billion cubic meters after the discovery of deposits of 2.2 billion cubic meters of shale gas in the Fulingye field, the biggest gas reserve in China.
