China for decades has always been linked to rapid development and progress. However, there is still is a room for development in the energy hungry country. China’s natural gas resources are majorly distributed in the central and the western region and the proven reserves of natural gas amounted to 3.1 trillion cubic meters at the end of 2012.
The per capita data for the country totals at 2400 cubic meters. The figure does not seem that impressive when compared to the global average which is more than 28,000 cubic meters.
Uneven natural gas distribution in the country is the major cause for the crippled growth pattern in the natural gas consumption in the country. Patchy presence of gas implicates to high transmission costs. Strategized transportation and infrastructural development of the same would lead to even consumption and eradicate a part of problem of the country as well.
