China, the world’s second-largest importer of liquefied natural gas (LNG), boosted its imports of the chilled fuel by 51.5 percent in August, according to the General Administration of Customs data.

The world’s largest energy consumer imported 4.71 million tonnes of LNG last month, compared to 3.14 million tonnes in August 2017, the data shows.

Compared to the previous month, imports of the fuel rose 13.5 percent.

China’s LNG imports have been steadily growing this year as the country is replacing coal-powered generation with natural gas in its strategy for cleaner air.

In the January-August period, China took 32.63 million tonnes of LNG, up 47.8 percent year-on-year, the customs data said.
