And in the first half of the year 2018 growth was already 17,5% in comparison with the same period of last year. "The People's Republic of China annually shows impressive growth rates of demand for natural gas... In the conditions of the environmental policy pursued by the Chinese government consumption of gas in China will only increase and in the next years will come to level more than 300 billion cubic meters a year", - Miller has noted.
