Launched in 2004, NewsBase’s China Oil & Gas Monitor (ChinaOil) provides consistent insight into the oil & gas sector of the world’s second largest economy.
Published every Thursday, ChinaOil’s scope includes not just China and Taiwan’s oil and gas sectors but also that of Mongolia and pertinent coverage of Central Asia and Russia.

What, Why and What Next?
- Geopolitics – Every week ChinaOil delves into the inner workings of the country’s oil & gas sector to deliver fresh news and insight on the world’s second largest crude oil importer and consumer, and fourth largest producer. Leading commentaries in recent years have covered the country’s evolving foreign and domestic upstream policies, its increasing presence in Central Asia, the proliferation of oil-for-loans deals and rising tensions with its regional neighbours over territorial claims in the East and South China Seas. ChinaOil not only analyses of what is happening on the local political landscape, but provides insights into the affects this might have on the regional and global oil & gas industry.
- Interviews & Country Profiles – Our editorial team is constantly looking for stories that cannot be found elsewhere amongst our competitors. We have interviewed leading industry figures and analysts, providing a unique and exclusive insight into the issues that matter.
- Projects & Companies – ChinaOil highlights state and private company activity at home and abroad, from planning and investment to production and results. Covering new projects and developments, as well as contracts or tenders being announced and won, ChinaOil has allowed our customers to keep track of their competition and look for new opportunities across China, Taiwan, Mongolia, as well as links to China’s foreign interests.
- Local Press – Our News in Brief section at the back of each issue also allows our customers to keep abreast what the local press are saying in each region. Alongside local press cuttings, News in Brief also features press releases from companies operating in China, Taiwan and Mongolia.
