Shipping China 2007 - Energy Transportation
gas, coal – demand, supply and marine transportation for China.

CHINA has a huge craving for energy that is evident across the globe as it searches far and wide for the fuel to keep its massive economy growing.

It recorded economic growth of 10.2% in 2005 and, according to BP's Statistical Review of World Energy 2006, accounted for just under half of the world's entire growth in energy consumption for the year.

Not only is China the world's biggest producer and consumer of coal, but it is the second biggest consumer of oil after the US and just this summer it stepped onto the international LNG stage by importing its first ever cargo into a new terminal at Guangdong.

In oil, Chinese state-owned giants CNOOC, Sinopec and PetroChina, are investing billions of dollars in overseas fields as they seek secure access to the huge quantities of oil that will be required over and above domestic supplies.

Growth in natural gas is being boosted not just by the economy but also by environmental pressures favouring the use of cleaner fuels. There are ambitious plans for domestic supply growth and pipeline imports, but liquefied natural gas is also expected to form an important part of China's supply strategy.

With the Dapeng LNG terminal in Guangdong having just started operations, a second receiving facility at Fujian will follow within three years and there are plans for as many as 10 more if supplies can be secured cheaply enough.

The first Shipping China 2004 conference broke new ground by offering delegates a genuinely open debating platform for discussions. The annual Shipping China event has become the established forum for world leaders in shipping, including local and domestic to meet, share experiences and forge new partnerships.

Shipping China 2007 will focus exclusively on the question on how shipping will respond to China's every growing energy requirement looking ahead into demand drivers, oil, gas, coal, energy alternatives and fleet programmes.

"COSCO GROUP and I are pleased to support Shipping China 2007 and look forward to attending this important conference."
