Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes the energy security of China, and then commences discussion of a model of joint exploitation and conflict regarding oil exploitation in the South China Sea (SCS). The energy security situation of China now demonstrates that China not only needs to change its current energy security policy and lean toward multiple sources of energy importation, but also needs to speed up offshore oil exploitation. The chapter concludes with a discussion of cross-Strait co-operation in the SCS, with regard to the interests of Chinese people. The co-operation on oil and gas exploitation relies on political understanding and co-operation among all the parties concerned, as well as a favourable environment of diplomacy and security, with economic development as the core. China has made its own contribution to security maintenance of the SCS.

Keywords: cross-Strait co-operation; energy security; gas exploitation; oil exploitation; South China sea (SCS)
