China's liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucking capacity will double to 38 million tonnes by 2025, consultancy Wood Mackenzie said in a report on Monday.
The flexibility offered from delivering LNG by truck will help offset a lack of infrastructure such as pipelines, storage and regasification units, the consultancy said.
Wood Mackenzie estimated the country's gas consumption would reach 264 billion cubic metres in 2018, with 12 percent of that delivered by trucks.
While gas demand is expected to remain healthy this year, the next winter shortage will not be as severe as last season, Wood Mackenzie said.
