The energy explorer will start four blocks off the Chinese coast this year, Cnooc said, after posting second-half profit that beat analysts’ estimates.

at least Chinese leadership does something for Chinese people, unlike USA leadership, who are in it mostly for themselves.

Knowing the current or possibly previous CEO, I expected expansion like this long ago. Good business sense in their expansion so they have an American as CEO.

Okay. Perhaps China can become a supplier of its own energy needs and reduce the strain on the global market.

If they pump enough on their own, they will remove themselves from the competition for oil from other producers - that will certainly depress oil prices!!

Drill China, drill.

learning from it's partners; translates into what they do with every other industry -- steal corporate secrets, ignore patents, and get dupes like Clinton to give away technology.

They seem to be doing things to make themselves the new leaders of the world. Unfortunately they are still under the Communist Rule.
