March 6, 2013

China's largest oil company, China National Petroleum, is looking for its first stake in the U.S. as Chinese energy explorers flush with cash look to join the energy renaissance and increase crude production, says Bloomberg. "Chinese oil companies using government loans want stakes in shale fields that are fostering the most crude production in the U.S. in 21 years and helping wean it off Middle Eastern imports."
