NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -03/02/12)- In recent years, China's government has taken steps to increase the country's domestic energy production -- particularly in coal, oil and natural gas. Peng Qiming, director of the Ministry of Land and Resources' geological exploration department, says that China will step up oil and gas exploration to meet the country's rising energy demands and to ease its reliance on imports. Meanwhile, China's coal production continues to grow year-on-year.

China continues to boost its coal production. The coal industry has helped strike a balance between the country's energy supply and demand, marking a good start to the social and economic development during the 12th Five-Year Plan period (2011-2015), said Liu Tienan, head of the National Energy Administration.
China produced 3.52 billion tonnes of raw coal in 2011, 8.7 percent more than a year earlier, the official People's Daily reported earlier this week.
