However, the subsequent growth momentum was insufficient, and the benefits brought to the market in terms of cost were limited. In addition, the market demand was limited, the terminal demand was weak, the enthusiasm for downstream entry into the market was limited, and the market trading atmosphere was light. During the month, there was little change in Shandong market supply, the market supply was relatively sufficient, and it was difficult for prices to rise.

Recently, the international crude oil price has fluctuated, and the overall trend is still weak, which brings a certain negative to the market. In July, the traditional sales off-season has not yet passed, the weather is hot, the terminal consumption is slow, and the enthusiasm for entering the market in the downstream is limited. The supply side of the Shandong market is relatively abundant, and the contradiction between market supply and demand is still there. It is expected that the price of Shandong's civil gas market will continue to decline in August.
