London - GB

Organisation : Chatham House

Rebalancing the World Energy Markets: The role of China, Russia and Central Asia' will study the interplay of factors shaping the world’s energy markets.

Examining China, Russia and Central Asia’s demand drivers, it will assess the impact of unconventional energy sources, and discuss the feasibility of developing new fields in the context of oil and gas transport options. 
This two-day conference will provide a unique platform for policy makers, governments, commentators and key industry figures to assess the current situation and ask what lies ahead. Questions surrounding the domestic political context and business environment in which investments are likely to be made will be central to the conference debates. 

  • What effect is China’s rapidly rising domestic energy consumption having on global oil and gas supplies?
  • How will internal and external energy demand affect China’s investment decisions?
  • Will international oil companies be able to make significant investments in China’s expanding energy sector?
  • What role for Gazprom in the context of the ‘Shale Gas Revolution’ and China’s alternative gas sources?
  • What are the short- and medium-term plans for investment in production expansion in Russia, Central Asia and China?
