The Chinese Oil Industry: History and Future / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Springer New York
The Chinese Oil Industry: History and Future presents a wealth of tables and figures with new data on Chinese fossil fuel production and consumption, together with a peak oil model to forecast future trends in energy supply and demand. Energy experts in China and the United States provide you with a unique overview of the entire Chinese oil industry. The authors discuss trends in production and consumption of global significance through to the middle of the 21st century, including the energy returned on energy invested (EROI) for China’s oil and gas.
The role of oil in the industrialization of China is described as arefour phases in the history of the Chinese oil industry. Detailed coverage of resources and exploration, pipeline development, refining and marketing, petroleum and natural gas pricing policies, and international cooperation is followed by consideration of conservation, renewable energy, and environmental impact. The authors also address the importance of coal and the probable future of coal production.

About the Author
Professor Lianyong Feng was born in 1966. He is an associate professor at the School of Business Administration in the University of Petroleum, Beijing. Presently, he is secretary of ASPO-China.
In 1988, he graduated and was awarded his Management Engineering Bachelor's degree from the University of Petroleum (East China). He continued his studies there and received his Master's degree three years later. Since April of 1991, he started teaching at this university for the next six years. In March of 1996, Dr. Feng furthered his studies at the Moscow Petroleum University, Russia and received his Doctoral degree on October, 10th of 1997. From 1997 to 1999, Dr. Feng worked in Kazakhstan for the transportation and distribution of crude oil. From July 1999 to October 2000, he worked for the crude oil importation from Russia. From October 2000 to September 2003, he worked as deputy director in the Strategy Research Office of Development Research Center of China’s National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).
In September of 2003, Dr. Feng returned to the University of Petroleum, Beijing and started his teaching and research career again. He teaches courses on “International Petroleum Economics,” “Engineering Economics,” and “Energy Economics.” Dr. Feng has published more than thirty articles and monographs. He has also undertaken and completed over ten research projects related to the subjects on international petroleum economics and cooperation and energy economics.
Yan Hu is a Ph.D. candidate at the program of Petroleum Engineering and Management at the China University of Petroleum (Beijing), where she has studied for seven years since 2004. She has been studying peak oil, and energy system and management, and has published more than 10 scholarly articles in Chinese and one in a Chinese book “Post Oil Age”. In 2011, Hu was supported by China Scholarship Council (CSC) to study in the State University of New York (SUNY) for more than one year. Recently, her interests have turned towards analyzing the energy return on investment (EROI) which was defined by Charles Hall. She seized the opportunities offered by Hall to attend SUNY, attending there classes including “Energy System”, “System Ecology”, and “Biophysical Economy”, and also publishing one paper in Sustainability on “Analysis of the Energy Return on Investment (EROI) of the Huge Daqing Oil Field in China”
Professor Charlie Hall is a systems ecologist with strong interests in energy flows in natural systems and human society. He received his PhD from Dr. Howard Odum at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1970. His work has involved streams, estuaries and tropical forests, but has focused increasingly on human-dominated ecosystems in the US and Latin America. He is best known for developing the concept of EROI, or energy return on investment, as it relates to e.g. migrating fish and obtaining oil and gas. Hall’s latest focus has been on developing an alternative approach to economics called biophysical economics, an attempt to understand human economies from a biophysical rather than just social perspective. He recently co-authored “Energy and the Wealth of Nations: Understanding the Biophysical Economy” with economist Kent Klitgaard.
Jianliang Wang is a Ph.D student of Petroleum Engineering and Management in China University of Petroleum (Beijing). His main research area is evaluation of oil and gas resources, modeling peak fossil fuels and analysis on the impact of the potential shortage of oil and gas supply on China’s economy. He has published 9 peer-reviewed articles in journals, 3 papers in magazines, 4 papers in newspapers and several papers in conferences. In Sep. 2012, he will be supported by China Scholarship Council (CSC) to study in the Global Energy System of Uppsala University in Sweden for one year. The topic of his doctoral thesis is about forecasting world’s fossil fuels production and analyzing their impact on future global climate change.
