China's refined fuel consumption this year is likely to grow 3% from pre-COVID levels in 2019, and that of natural gas by about 5.5% from 2022, state energy giant PetroChina said on Thursday.

New energy, such as wind, solar and thermal power, is expected to account for 7% of the group's total output portfolio by 2025, the company told an earnings briefing. (Reporting by Chen Aizhu and Andrew Hayley; Editing by Jan Harvey)
