China’s apparent consumption of refined oil rose 3.3 percent year-on-year to 250.8 million tons in 2012, the National Development and Reform Commission, the country’s top economic planning body, said in a statement on its website on Monday.

Apparent consumption refers to the mathematical sum of production plus imports minus exports.

By the end of December, refined oil stocks increased 680,000 tons from a month earlier or 1 million tons from a year earlier, the statement said.

China’s apparent consumption of gas was 147.1 billion cubic meters in 2012, up 13 percent year-on-year. The country’s gas output rose 6.5 percent year-on-year to 107.7 billion cu m, while gas imports, including LNG, surged 31.1 percent year-on-year to 42.5 cu m.
