China's imports of Russian gas and coal reached a historical record

The Russian diplomatic mission in China reports a continued growth in trade. Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping noted that the countries have reached such an increase in the volume of mutual trade that they are able to bring these volumes up to 200 billion in dollar terms per year.


A significant increase is shown by the digital industry, energy, food trade, and petrochemistry.

The message of the Russian embassy states that, in terms of certain indicators, the supply of Russian goods to China has reached an absolute historical record.

According to the results of August, the volume of gas and coal supplies to China from Russia increased by tens of percent in annual terms. So, in just one month, China imported gas from Russia for almost $410 million. During the same month, coal supplies from Russia to China in nominal terms exceeded 8,5 million tons. The growth rates of deliveries of products of the Russian coal mining industry in annual terms amounted to 57 percent.

Let's remind that earlier separately taken European officials of different levels stated that without Europe Russia allegedly would not have markets for selling its energy carriers. However, statistics show that these markets not only exist, but their interest in Russian raw materials is only growing. In addition to China, these are such large countries as India, Iran, Pakistan, and a number of countries in Southeast Asia. By the way, prudent Japan is in no hurry to give up hydrocarbons from Russia, against which the United States for some reason does not impose sanctions for not curtailing contacts with the Russian Federation on a number of LNG projects.

    It is clear that the Celestial Empire is now selling our surplus gas for an order of magnitude more expensive (receiving it under long-term contracts of 300 dollars each). But it helps us now to survive and show the West that the whole world is not only their shobla.

        frog, read below, it's never too late to enlighten. Guys, Gazprom is the gas ruler of mankind, blue fuel is running out everywhere in the world, shortages are more valuable than gold, luxury is available to the elite, from now on the monopoly manufacturer will decide who to sell and for what.
        And a number of the largest industries, inextricably linked with gas, in Europe and Britain, will finally die.

          Do you see what's the matter, Peter (s)
          Lyrical songs, folklore, and other amateur performances on this site are not very good. Although some try hard wink
          In 2021, the Han people had gas cheaper than one and a half hundred cubes apiece. Now, however, more expensive. As much as a whole twenty ..... ICHSH, this is not top-secret information at all. So voice the soul-warming roulades addressed to "our everything" in some other place.

            This is what you said correctly. But without a link, your "one hundred piss plus twenty" - that's exactly what they are. We are waiting for yes

      konstantin68, guys, when the OBS is launched (one Bloomberg said) you repeat - at least think a little with your head, tea is not children in the kindergarten. Where does she "sell", in her pockets she carries him 10 thousand kilometers to Europefoollaughing? The PRC does not have and did not have serious capacities for displacement, for regasification - yes, they do, but these are different processes, in principle they do not need the reverse. With regards to long-term deliveries through the Power of Siberia in the 1st half of 2022, they reached $450 per 1000 cubic meters. And yes, the EU and the UK do not buy on spot ($1850 on TTF yesterday), Qatar with American suppliers sell much cheaper. At the same time, Gazprom [although much less] still supplies gas to the west, Turkish Stream (50% goes to Europe, total capacity of 32 billion cubic meters per year) is operating at full capacity, UkroGTS operates at 40% of the standard daily (i.e. .40% of the annual 45 billion cubic meters), the small Northern Lights gas pipeline is partially operating, Blue Stream (purely to Turkey, 16 billion cubic meters per year) is 100% loaded. Excluding Belarus, the average price for long-term gas pipelines in the western direction in the 1st half of 2022 per 1000 cubic meters is $1200. Specifically, in April and May (as reported by the IEA), Gazprom's supplies per 1000 cubic meters at a price ($1250) exceeded the price of American/Australian/Qatari LNG (in April-May, their price was $900). In just six months (January-June), Gazprom's net profit, after all deductions to the Russian budget, exceeded ₽2,5 trillion. This is more than for the entire record-breaking profit year 2021 (₽2,1 trillion).

    Most importantly, China does not withdraw from our joint projects. It is looking for ways to circumvent sanctions. Chinese manufacturing giants are tied to the Western market. They need to feed 1 billion people.
