In August, the production of raw coal, natural gas and electric power of industries above designated size kept growth, the production of crude oil decreased year-on-year. Compared with July, the growth rate of the production of raw coal and natural gas slowed down, the production of crude oil has changed from increasing to decreasing, and the power production accelerated.

 

I. Raw Coal, Crude Oil and Natural Gas Production and Relevant Information

 

The growth rate of raw coal production maintained stable, and the import changed from decreasing to increasing. In August, 370 million tons of raw coal were produced, basically the same as last month, a year-on-year increase of 8.1 percent, 8.0 percentage point slower than that of the previous month, and the average daily output was 11.95 million tons. The import of coal was 29.46 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 5.0 percent, and a decrease of 21.8 percent in the previous month.

 

From January to August, 2.93 billion tons of raw coal were produced, a year-on-year increase of 11.0 percent. The imported coal was 167.98 million tons, a year-on-year decrease of 14.9 percent.

 

 

 

Crude oil production decreased slightly, and the decrease in imports maintained. In August, it produced 16.94 million tons of crude oil, a year-on-year decrease of 0.2 percent, an increase of 3.0 percent in the previous month, and the average daily output was 546,000 tons. Imported crude oil was 40.35 million tons, a year-on-year decrease of 9.4 percent, and 0.1 percentage points lower than last month.

 

From January to August, it produced 136.94 million tons of crude oil, a year-on-year increase of 3.2 percent. The import of crude oil was 330.18 million tons, a year-on-year decrease of 4.7 percent.

 

The decrease in crude oil processing volume narrowed. In August, 53.66 million tons of crude oil were processed, a year-on-year decrease of 6.5 percent, 2.3 percentage point lower than that of the previous month, and the average daily processing was 1.731 million tons. From January to August, 434.89 million tons of crude oil were processed, a year-on-year decrease of 6.3 percent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The growth rate of natural gas production was slowed, and the decrease in imports was enlarged. In August, it produced 17 billion cubic meters of natural gas, a year-on-year increase of 6.3 percent, 1.9 percentage points slower than last month, and the average daily output was 550 million cubic meters. The import of natural gas was 8.85 million tons, a year-on-year decrease of 15.2 percent, and a decrease of 9.1 percentage points enlarged from the previous month.

 

From January to August, 143.7 billion cubic meters of natural gas were produced, a year-on-year increase of 5.5 percent. The imported natural gas was 71.05 million tons, a year-on-year decrease of 10.2 percent.

 

 

 

II. Electric Power Production

 

The growth rate of power production was accelerated. In August, the power generation was 824.8 billion kwh, a year-on-year increase of 9.9 percent, an increase of 5.4 percentage points over the previous month, and the average daily power generation was 26.61 billion kwh. From January to August, the power generation was 5.6 trillion kwh, a year-on-year increase of 2.5 percent.

 

From the perspective of varieties, in August, thermal power and wind power accelerated, the growth of solar power slowed down, the growth of hydropower decreased year-on-year, and the decrease of nuclear power narrowed. Among them, thermal power increased by 14.8 percent year-on-year, 9.5 percentage points faster than last month; wind power increased by 28.2 percent, 22.5 percentage points faster than last month; solar power generation increased by 10.9 percent, 2.1 percentage points slower than last month. hydropower decreased by 11.0 percent and increased by 2.4 percent last month; nuclear power decreased by 0.6 percent, 2.7 percentage points lower than last month;

 

 

Annotations:

 

1. Explanatory Notes

 

Average daily product output: It is calculated by dividing the total output of Industrial Enterprises above the designated size announced in that month by the calendar days of that month.

 

2. Statistical Coverage

 

The statistical caliber of the output data in the report is above the designated size of industry, and the statistical scope is industrial enterprises with annual main business income of more than 20 million yuan.

 

Because the scope of Industrial Enterprises above the designated size changes every year, in order to ensure that this year's data is comparable with the previous year's, the same period used to calculate the growth rate of various indicators such as product output is consistent with the statistical scope of enterprises in this period, and there is a caliber difference between the data released last year.

 

3. Data Source

 

Import data comes from the General Administration of Customs, of which August data are express data.

 

4. Conversion relationship of natural gas units: 1 ton is equal to 1380 cubic meters.
