China’s Private Enterprises Enter into the “Circle of Friends” of International Oil gas
As always, oil gas resources are the key benefits for a country around the world, with quite high requirements for market access and many of them are directly controlled by financial cliques and even the head of a state. The upstream oil gas mostly is grasped by the oil producing countries, and much more of international market’s intermediate links are controlled by European, American and Japanese financial cliques. Up to now, China has already had more than 100 international oil gas cooperation projects with 33 countries globally, and established five big international oil gas cooperation zones successively. Even so, as the buyer, China is still lack of speaking right in international oil gas market. Enough speaking right only could be won for China within international oil gas industry, and the risk brought to China’s economic development due to long-term fluctuation of world oil price only could be avoided by controlling European strong terminal market, an obtaining more upstream rights and interests based on that, thus getting through domestic and international markets and realizing the resource changing and linkage between Chinese market and Central Asian upstream& European terminal.
In the past, most of Chinese enterprises only made a program or project when they went abroad for investment, and they would directly come back China when the program was over or the project was completed, and it was quite difficult for them to get any relevance with the local. Not a few of Chinese enterprises were limited by their companies’ main business in most cases, they were used to fight alone, and lacked the control and layout upon the whole industry chain, thus leading to the result of fighting the energy separately and even cutthroat competition. Now we are not only cooperating with single enterprise or doing single project, but laying emphasis on the strategic layout of industry chain and even value chain, we are aimed at the organization and integration of resources, as which could greatly enhance industry’s collaboration and earnings- generating capacities, also we do not need to largely lay off employees or replace people, thus “Going Out” would be smoother and steadier.
With the advance of the proposal “One Belt and One Road”, Chinese enterprises’ “Going out” is widely concerned by the international community. Elements, such as global technique, capital, talents, market and supply chain, must be integrated for “Going Out”, and that is really not easy. Especially the “anti-globalization” thought currently simmers below the surface, hence “Going Out” must be accompanied by huge challenge.
