【ECF News】Oil & gas exploration and development in China: why is it difficult for new entrants?

Oil & gas exploration and development is a high-risk industry. Hundreds of millions could be invested with nothing coming out. Therefore, engaging in oil and gas exploration and development requires sufficient financial strength and anti-risk ability, in addition to the corresponding technology and experience. In these respects, many new entrants are seriously inadequate compared with the oil majors.As China's oil and gas system reform continues to deepen, the opening door to oil and gas exploration and development is also widening.From the Ministry of Natural Resources's (formerly the Ministr

China has massive reserves, so why can’t it meet demand for gas?

China’s natural gas production is rising at the fastest pace in four years, but that will not be enough to meet the demand for the fuel that has been unleashed through a government programme to raise gas usage to clean the country’s polluted air.Gas output in China rose to a record 147.4 billion cubic metres (bcm) last year, up 8.5 per cent from 2016, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed. Gas production is forecast to climb by between 6 and 8 per cent per year through 2020, according to researchers at China National Petroleum Corp.But China’s war against smog has spawned voraciou
