2B1st_Project_Smart_Explorer_Sales_Pursuit_Tool If China growth domestic product (GDP) slowed down these last years, it remains twice higher than world average and it maintains its top position as the country with the largest energy consumption.

In 2014, China is passing USA to become the world largest net importer of liquid fuels.   

With a steady demand for energy on its domestic market, China is burning the equivalent of 11 million barrels per day of liquid fuels.

Since most of the oil and gas fields in production in China are maturing, the Authorities are pushing the national companies China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC or PetroChina), Sinopec and China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to explore conventional and unconventional oil and gas resources, in China onshore and offshore, and outside China such as Africa, Middle-East and North America

In order to facilitate the local acceptance and to improve their expertise in developing more and more challenging oil and gas fields, the Chinese companies multiply the partnerships with North American and European companies.

The last major move of China Authorities on the energy sector took place end of 2013 in curbing its oil price policy in order to align the domestic prices on the international market.
