Yergin (2011: 204-205) described the attempt well by saying that it was like – throwing a lit match into a gas filled room on top of Capitol Hill, as it instantly flamed a debate over energy security. So to put it crudely China is not allowed to buy firms so that it can import high-end technologies to better its domestic production (even if a firm ...

... to be cut as it is not needed. However, employment laws in Europe make it difficult alongside labour unions and local authorities. Things are bleak as new global producers have a logistical edge via better placed terminals and newer equipment – China alone will increase its refining capacity by 2.4 million barrels per day in just four years. As USA enters the export market excess diesel fuel will be exported to Europe, while gasoline will be moved to Latin America, in all this shift may prove to be the final nail. ‘Easy on the Gas’ – No EU Policymaker Said Originally natural gas was considered a by-product of oil production, but its potential and less ...

... at the winning end in contrast to the seller, as fixed assets like pipelines cannot be re-diverted in case of disagreements over price. Hence, if in the future Russia does not agree with potential Chinese demands it will be left with no options, but China will be able to get gas in Central Asia or via the sea from Australia and maybe even the USA post 2016-2017 when many anticipate possible start to shale-LNG shipping.

... already apparently invested $1.52 billion into US shale, with an aim to increase its global oil production to 200 million tonnes by 2015 - very ambitions (See: RT). China has also pushed to invest into natural gas-stations for transport vehicles in the USA, as by switching from oil to gas reduces pollution (See: ChinaEN). One wonders, if China this way wants to get closer to US shale technology, as one must point out that the US has been highly reclusive of it, not even allowing Chinese passport holders to its production sites.
