Oil and Gas Markets to 2025 - LUKoil

... footing gives a lot momentum for those that believe exporting gas will damage the domestic economy via high prices. Interestingly, USA’s natural conventional gas production will actually fall steadily, which may raise worries if the unconventional gas is actually overvalued. Also, even Russia, traditionally a pipeline supplier will enter the game with about a 1/10th share by 2025. No section about energy is complete without China, which is why LUKoil highlights that the Asian dragon has the most favourable conditions to establish shale production and it has already begun to import relevant technologies. However, the lack of gas infrastructure and limited water resources ...

This is why, distribution of economic capabilities in the near future will be vital as unless asymmetry is lessened, this relationship may not get very far, as asymmetry breeds conflict. Counter-Agent Dilemma & Subsidized Gas/Oil to China: The publicised and agreed energy deals with China are currently at the break-even point or just above it, which comparatively puts them on par with expensive Australian projects.

Mareš and Laryš argue that China’s gas market is a questionable venture, as it is traditionally orientated towards coal with gas only account for 3% of the energy mix. China has begun to move towards natural gas only 10 years ago. It is estimated that the overall total will rise to around 10% by 2020, but with increasing competition and Beijing’s strategy of diversifying imports as much as possible, it is uncertain ...

..., its growth has been very rapid. China has single-handedly fuelled more demand for LNG and expanded not only in its domestic, but also in international markets, like Africa (See: NYT).
