Chi Guojing, the secretary general of China City Gas Association, said: "It is hard, but after the implementation of a series of policies especially the environmental protection and reform measures, the progress of "changing coal to gas" projects will be greatly enhanced."

How to solve the problem of the gas source?
The Shaanxi-Beijing four lines and the Zhongwei -Jingbian lines constructed by PetroChina will be completed and put into use by the end of October, and the Tianjin LNG receiving station will be put into use by the end of this year.
At the same time, PetroChina and Sinopec, CNOOC and other enterprises should establish a mechanism for UNPROFOR, through string exchange behalf of each other, mutual benefits and other measures, to gain the initiative and increase resources.

From the tight market demand, tight gas supply and the market price of the auction environment, it is not difficult to see that it is inevitable that the gas prices will increase. However, there is no need to worry due to the control of relevant departments such as the Price Bureau, so the price of gas will increase at a certain level.
