Chinese upstream oil and gas, uranium sectors benefit from private capital

BEIJING, Nov 29 (Reuters) РThe Chinese upstream oil and gas sector will be further opened up between 2016 and 2020, the official Xinhua news agency reported, citing the vice minister of the Ministry of Land and Resources.

The world’s largest energy consumer will introduce private investment in upstream prospecting and push forward reforms of the oil gas prospecting system, Xinhua reported.
