Chapter Summary

China has adopted a series of energy policies and approaches to realize a steady oil supply. This chapter presents a case study of Saudi Arabia and Sudan, two of most significant oil exporting countries to China. After coal, oil is and will remain the second most important source of energy for China. It is difficult to examine the prospects of oil supply security for China without conducting research on these major oil exporters to China. China's oil cooperation with foreign nations will inevitably lead to a restructuring of geo-political relations, especially China's relation with the US. In terms of international oil partnership, the Sino-US relationship has both conflicts of interest and common strategic benefits. Therefore, it is vital for China's international oil cooperation to develop a proper understanding of Sino-US ties.
