China En Route To Being World’s Largest LNG Market

Talking of gas!










As I have often pointed out, China’s appetite for energy is voracious, and it will get its hands on whatever is available, wherever it comes from.

Anyone who thinks they are in the least bit bothered about CO2 emissions needs to get real.

    “Anyone who thinks they are in the least bit bothered about CO2 emissions needs to get real”

    It’s easy to be a virtue signaller, and complain that “WE” (i.e. somebody else) need to do something – so long as your own lights and heating work on demand, and there are thousands of fuel pumps ready to fill your car in minutes. Only when this all comes tumbling down will these idiots start to understand…

    For context – 1 bcm of gas has an energy content of about 11.0 TWh.

    In 2017 GB gas demand was 874TWh / ~79.5bcm

    The worrying connection here is Paul’s other post about our gas use. With China using so much it will push the wholesale price up and make both our electricity and our heating more expensive.

    While we have the anti-frackers here in Lancashire who have delayed Cuadrilla by over seven years. By now we should be consuming our own fracked gas and who knows, even exporting to China. The loss of royalties to the exchequer must be in the billions which would help fund the NHS, education, DWP, lowering taxes…etc etc.

    Isn’t China at least slightly concerned about its polluted air?
