Plans of the green course implementation posted by the European Union in mid-July leave no doubt that Europe is clearly set to reduce consumption of hydrocarbons.
Therefore, oil and gas producers are likely to lean stronger towards Asian markets that will support demand for conventional energy sources in the next few decades.
In this regard, a special attention should be paid to China that has already become the largest importer of Russian oil and has started receiving piped gas from Russia. Actually, Moscow considered Beijing not only as a key consumer of Russian hydrocarbons at present and in the future, but also as a potential creditor, an investor and a supplier of equipment.
So, how has China fared in all these spheres?
The report elaborates on the following questions:
- Has China helped alleviate the deficit of investments in the Russian oil and gas sector following sanctions, including financial?
- What is the dynamics of presence of Russian companies in the Chinese oil and gas markets and who our major competitors are?
- What are Chinese investment priorities and why it does not invest in oil production but enters shareholder capital of gas and chemical projects in Russia?
- How does China try to employ Russia to solve the problem of oil and gas deficit and simultaneously reduce its expenses and risks?
- How does China participate in major gas chemical projects in Russia and who Chinese partners are?
- How significant is participation of Chinese suppliers in the Russian market of oil services equipment?
- What is the forecast of demand for oil and gas in China in the medium-term perspective?
- How feasible is construction of new gas pipelines to China, including the Power of Siberia 2 project?
