    Gaseous natural gas is mainly transported through natural gas pipelines, and my country's onshore oil and gas pipelines have basically formed a national natural gas pipeline network supply pattern that connects overseas, covers the whole country, spans east and west, north and south.


    In 2019, China's natural gas pipeline construction was progressing steadily.
    By the end of the year, China's long-distance natural gas pipeline had a total mileage of nearly 77,000 kilometers.
    In the "China* Oil and Gas Pipeline Network Planning", by the end of 2020, the length of my country's oil and gas pipelines will reach 169,000 kilometers, of which the length of natural gas pipelines will reach 103,000 kilometers, and by 2025, it will reach 163,000 kilometers.
    With the official commissioning of the Sino-Russian Eastern Route (Northern Section), China's northwest, northeast, southwest and offshore four strategic oil and gas import channels have basically been completed, and my country's four major oil and gas strategic channels have realized the ability to transport both crude oil and natural gas.
    With the continuous construction of my country's natural gas pipeline projects, my country's gaseous natural gas imports continue to grow, reaching 13.
    05 billion U.
    dollars in 2019, an increase of 12.
    15% year-on-year.
    Due to the limitations of hardware facilities, gaseous natural gas is mainly imported from neighboring countries that have the conditions for laying, such as Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Myanmar, and the Russian Federation.
    In the first half of 2020, my country's gaseous natural gas was mainly imported to Turkmenistan, with an import value of 340.
    242 million U.
    dollars, accounting for 62% of the total.
    According to statistics from the PetroChina Western Pipeline Company, the Central Asia Natural Gas Pipeline delivered more than 47.
    9 billion cubic meters of natural gas to the country in 2019.
    According to statistics from Kunming Customs in Yunnan, the import volume of natural gas in the China-Myanmar oil and gas pipeline exceeded 5 billion cubic meters.
    Exports are mainly exported to Hong Kong, China

    my country's export volume of gaseous natural gas is small, but the growth rate has accelerated.
    In 2019, the export volume reached 1.
    243 billion U.
    dollars, an increase of 11% year-on-year.
    Unlike liquefied natural gas that only requires ship transportation, it can be transported on a large scale, which is conducive to the development of large-scale trade.
    Gaseous natural gas must lay pipelines, which limits the development of gaseous natural gas imports and exports.
      In terms of export areas, most of my country's gaseous natural gas is exported to Hong Kong, China, and a small part is exported to Macau, China.
    In the first half of 2020, exports to Hong Kong, China amounted to US$705.
    931 million, accounting for 98%.
      In 2020, the natural gas industry will consolidate the good momentum of increasing reserves and production, and my country's economy is in a stage of structural optimization and transformation of growth drivers.
    2020 is the target year of the "Three-Year Action Plan for Winning the Blue Sky Defense", to promote clean production of enterprises and steadily implement coal control targets in key areas.
    Environmental protection policies still have a driving effect on the growth of natural gas demand.
