Russia: India insisted on involvement in the South China Sea development, may be instigated by the United States
ignore China’s warning
Russian Strategic Culture Foundation Web site on July 31] question: the struggle of the South China Sea oil and gas (by Vadim Weihe Rove)
India’s oil and gas company has announced to continue engaged in Vietnam continental shelf oil and gas exploration, offshore oil and gas resources of China and Vietnam continued for more than a month war of nerves enter a new stage.
It is estimated that reserves in the South China Sea continental shelf oil reserves of 30 billion tons, natural gas reserves of 16 trillion cubic meters.
at the China National Offshore Oil Corporation announced an open tender for oil extraction in nine blocks in the waters after the dispute surfaced in Vietnam.
Vietnamese oil and gas companies claim 9 block is located within the Vietnamese continental shelf. Vietnamese Foreign Ministry, said China invited foreign investors to develop this region is a violation of the sovereignty of Vietnam. China and Vietnam each other issued worded diplomatic note.
Beijing, the move from the uneasiness of the situation in the Middle East, there is a major source of China’s imported energy. Today, China is looking for new sources of oil and gas. Vietnam has already begun in the South China Sea exploration and energy. The country to foreign companies the long-term license, these companies, including Exxon Mobil, the United States and Russia’s Gazprom.
Beijing continue to potential partners of Vietnam’s oil and gas companies to exert pressure, but has yet to direct pressure to the Russian Gazprom. BP to accept the conditions of China, refused to take risks to participate in Vietnam launched the South China Sea oil and gas exploration activities, plus points for China’s energy diplomacy, but Exxon Mobil did not follow suit.
In this case, the risk of India are willing to deteriorating relations with China, refused to give way to continue to cooperate with Vietnam, which looks like the move of the Cold War.
However, the Indians seem to do not want the Chinese people their relationship to a deadlock, for insurance: The oil and gas company in India and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) signed a memorandum of understanding in June, the two sides agreed to exploration of oil and gas resources in third countries, cooperation, and expand cooperation in the field of oil and gas processing and oil and gas pipeline construction. Here there may be any exchange of interests, but does not rule out the countries concerned to play a bigger game.
on this issue should refer to the following two factors: First, India and China’s long border disputes; two in recent years, Western countries – especially the United States – continue to curry favor with India, apparently is to use India to contain China.
perhaps, decided resident piling on the continental shelf of Vietnam is not from the oil and gas company in India, but India’s top political leadership to make America’s behest. Russian State Energy Research Institute Sergei the Pula Wosu Dov said: “The United States has been source of oil for China the country asking for trouble, these countries include Iran, Sudan, Libya, its purpose is to compress the opponent’s room for maneuver China’s oil supply source, which is blocking. “
This also means that, as long as the energy compete directly related to the interests of Exxon Mobil Corporation, Washington is bound to act decisively.
