China is one of the biggest players in the global oil and gas industry. Since 2012, the country has been in the top three biggest producers and consumers of oil in the world. On the other hand, natural gas is not too much of a popular option in the country, though the usage of natural gas is also rising over the years, yet oil demand remains set to grow substantially in China. Due to damage caused by flooding to the country's oil fields in 2013, the US overtook China in September 2013 to become the world's biggest importer or oil.

The potential of unconventional gas resources is significant in the Chinese oil and gas industry. Shale gas and coal bed methane (CBM) are witnessing a relatively strong growth in terms of exploration. China is also exploring the potential of methane hydrates as an energy sources from the seabed.
