Mr. John Cai, CEO of SCI, briefed on the mission and business perspectives of SCI during the opening speech. Mr. Cai believes China‘s oil and gas industries development may bring both opportunities and challenges to all global & local market participants.
Michael Mao presented the outstanding performance of China LNG industry in 2018, and conducted an in-depth analysis on future industry entrants and import potentials. He believes with the continuous market-orientation reforms in China natural gas industry, an increasing number of participants will get involved in import businesses. Though facing great challenges from natural gas and other substitutes, China‘s LPG industry will have a notable supply gap to be fulfilled by imports in the future, which is expected to bring opportunities for China alkane deep-processing players.
James Gao then shared his insights on China‘s oil refining and bunker industries. He said the emerging of private refining projects in China in recent years stimulated the ersification of supply pattern in China‘s oil refining industry. China‘s oil refining industry may experience a shuffle and integration in the next five years. Meanwhile, the low-sulfur trend of the global bunker market will bring opportunities for China‘s bunker industry. James Gao reckons China has enough ability to achieve self-sufficiency in the low-sulfur bunker supply in the near future, and even may export to key global markets with central government’s policy support.
