China plans to nearly double its gas supply from 196 bcm in 2015 to 360 bcm by 2020, and more than triple it to 600 bcm by 2030, but the country does not have the natural gas resources to sustain that vision. That means China must expand its importation of not only LNG, but also the technologies and services associated with the effective import, distribution, regulation and utilization of this precious global commodity. That is why leading market forecasters estimate the value of China’s import market to reach nearly $30 billion annually by 2030.

This increased demand presents tremendous opportunities for U.S. energy companies.

The United States Trade & Development Agency (USTDA) is hosting a visit of 15 senior level executives to the United States representing a cross-section of Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) officials, and private sector LNG gas buyers. This USTDA sponsored Business Briefing will provide U.S. companies the opportunity to interact directly with these key decision-makers from China's energy sector.
