While China is increasingly dependent on energy imports - particularly gas - owing to rapid
growth in its energy demand, there are considerable investment opportunities in its upstream segment.
Concerted efforts by the government to improve the economics of gas production and conditions for private

per day (b/d) in 2017 before declining to 4.24mn b/d by 2023.
