Liquefied natural gas for production. According to the Commodity Market Analysis System of Business Society, the domestic liquefied natural gas prices have continued to rise this week. At present, the domestic cold air is coming, and the demand for downstream replenishment is increasing. Under the policy of adding upper limit gas supply, the market supply is shrinking, driving the continuous rise of liquid prices. In terms of sea and gas, prices at some receiving stations have slightly increased. It is expected that the domestic liquefied natural gas prices will be strong in the short term.
Market forecast: Raw material prices remain stable this week, while fuel liquefied natural gas prices rise. The cost of polyaluminum chloride supports an overall increase. On the supply side, Chinese polyaluminum chloride manufacturers are producing normally and have sufficient inventory; On the demand side, there has been no significant improvement in purchasing willingness, and stability is the main focus. Analysis suggests that the recent market for polyaluminum chloride may be dominated by consolidation.
