Clean Energy Technologies Scales Natural Gas Trading Operations as China Market Recovers
COSTA MESA, CA., March 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clean Energy Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq CETY) (the “Company”), a clean energy manufacturing and services company, offering recyclable energy solutions, clean energy fuels, and alternative electric power for small and mid-sized projects in North America, Europe, and Asia today announced it has secured and sold 6.65 million cubic meters of natural gas (NG) through its subsidiaries and joint ventures in China for the first quarter of 2023, which totals to approximately USD 2.5 million in sales. Management believes that the NG market has significantly improved compared to the fourth quarter of 2022 when China’s economy was battered by COVID lockdowns and restrictions. China’s Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index reached 52.6 in February 2023 from a low of 47.0 in December 2022 (http://www.stats.gov.cn/). In the 2023 Government Work Report (http://www.gov.cn), the Chinese government set the economic growth target for 2023 at about 5% and made economic recovery the government’s most important task. CETY expects continuous high growth in demand for NG in China and is currently in the process of securing major NG sales contracts for the remainder of the year.
Due to the Ukrainian and Russian conflict, NG prices have fluctuated significantly in the past year. To better manage market risk as well as reduce exposure to cyclical factors such as lowered demand due to national holidays or weather, CETY is adjusting its NG strategy to stable higher volume trading in Pipeline Natural Gas (PNG) rather than opportunistic low volume trading with higher margins in Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
Kam Mahdi, CETY’s CEO said, “Our Natural Gas trading operations and NG pipeline business in China opens cross selling opportunities for CETY products and solutions. As we see an uptick in China’s economy returning to normal, we expect even more contribution from this business segment in the near future.”
