The country’s efforts to transition from coal to natural gas to curb pollution has opened up huge market opportunity for gas producers and related infrastructure providers around the world. Moreover, the demand for refinery and petrochemical products within the country is attracting considerable investments from Chinese, as well as global oil and gas companies.
