China, the world’s second-largest importer of LNG, is continuing to boost its imports of the chilled fuel and has reached a new record high as it is pursuing its strategy for cleaner air.

China imported 41.6 million tonnes in the January-October period, surpassing the 39 million tonnes it imported for the whole year of 2017 when it took over South Korea as the world’s second-largest LNG importer last year.

Compared to the January-October period last year, China’s LNG imports rose 43 percent, according to the data from the General Administration of Customs.

During the month of October, China received 4.6 million tonnes of LNG, a rise of 29.8 percent year-on-year, the data shows.
