China accelerates overseas energy cooperation to add new impetus to Asia Pacific Economic and trade cooperation

the 60th session of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, which closed on the 28th, learned that with the increase of energy cooperation projects between China and neighboring countries in recent years, energy cooperation in the Asia Pacific region has become a new impetus for regional economic and trade cooperation

Russian Vice Foreign Minister Fedotov said that developing cooperation with China in energy and other fields is one of the priority directions of Russia's foreign cooperation. At present, the two countries are discussing the construction of oil pipelines, which are undoubtedly mainly used for static load, dynamic load performance test and dynamic load fatigue life test of parts and large structural parts, which will open up broad prospects for bilateral energy cooperation

the Sino Russian oil pipeline project refers to the joint construction of an oil pipeline between China and Russia to sell the rich oil in Siberia and the Far East to China. In September, 2001, the Chinese and Russian governments signed an agreement to jointly build the oil pipeline from Angarsk to Daqing, China. However, the final direction of the pipeline has not been decided yet

it is reported that before the completion of the pipeline, Russia exported oil to China by railway. At the end of March this year, Yukos oil company of Russia and Russian railway transportation company signed an agreement on the joint transportation of oil to China compared with three years ago: Yukos company plans to provide 6.4 million tons of crude oil to China by railway this year, which will reach 8.5 million tons in 2005 and 15 million tons in 2006

Kazakhstan, another neighbor of China, also expressed interest in expanding energy cooperation with China. Kazakh foreign minister Tokaev said that Kazakhstan and China have great potential for cooperation in the field of energy, and Kazakhstan has agreed in principle to build an oil pipeline from Atasu to the Alashankou port on the Kazakhstan China border. At present, preparations for investment and technology are under way

in 1997, China and Kazakhstan signed an agreement on the construction of a China Kazakhstan oil pipeline with a total length of about 3000 kilometers. At present, the western section of the pipeline with a total length of 448 kilometers has been completed and put into use. The first-line oil pipeline from Atasu in the east to Dushanzi in Xinjiang via Alataw pass is expected to start construction this year

Indonesian Foreign Minister Hassan said during the meeting with Chinese Vice President Zeng Qinghong that Indonesia and China cooperated very well. Indonesia is willing to carry out more extensive cooperation with China in energy and other fields. According to the agreement previously signed by the two countries, Indonesia's Donggu gas field will deliver liquefied natural gas to Fujian Province of China from 2007, and the first phase is planned to achieve an annual supply of 2.6 million tons

Xia Yishan, a researcher at the China Institute of international studies, said, "the complementary relationship between China, Russia and Kazakhstan in the oil and gas field has laid a solid foundation for China Russia and China Kazakhstan energy cooperation. At the same time, the good political relations between China and Russia and Kazakhstan have created favorable conditions for bilateral energy cooperation."

after becoming a pure oil importer since 1993, China imported more than 91 million tons of crude oil last year, becoming the world's second largest oil importer after the United States. Experts predict that China's crude oil consumption in 2004 was about 2. 5% 700 million tons, and the net import volume will exceed 100 million tons. The deepening energy cooperation relationship in the Asia Pacific region will not only supplement China's energy resources, but also benefit relevant partners

brown, the development minister of Western Australia, who attended the meeting, said, "Western Australia has sufficient natural gas reserves and can supply gas to China continuously in the next 250 years. The energy demand brought by China's economic development is bringing huge business opportunities to Australia."

dalaru liboyakong, an official of the Thai Ministry of energy, said that the Thai government plans to start a strategic energy land route project in the near future to transport oil from the Andaman Sea to the Gulf of Thailand through the southern isthmus of Thailand. This channel will shorten the oil transportation line from the Middle East to East Asia by more than 1000 kilometers, thereby reducing the risk of East Asian countries transporting oil through the Strait of Malacca and reducing transportation costs. "We welcome Chinese investors to actively participate in this project," she said

"China and the results have triggered two pairs of friction forces and corresponding moments. It is a highly potential development field for neighboring countries to cooperate in energy," said pranish Saha, director of the Bureau of environment and sustainable development of escap. "The energy resources in the Asia Pacific region should be integrated to form a Supply-Demand Network."
