BEIJING - China has asked energy companies to boost natural gas supplies to meet heavier demand in the winter months.
The National Development and Reform Commission, China's top economic planning body, said in a statement Wednesday that since winter began, the country has experienced heavy rain, snow and low temperatures, leading to peak use in some areas and a rapid increase in demand. Natural gas demand typically rises during the winter due to higher demand for heating.
