Construction and Operation of China-Myanmar Oil & Gas Pipeline: A Geopolitical-economic Analysis

Journal Article March, 2015

The China-Myanmar Oil & Gas pipeline has not only brought enormous geopolitical interests for both China and Myanmar, but also changed the energy geopolitics pattern in Asia, especially in East Asia and South Asia. The unfurling of the project is driven by multiple considerations including the national energy security strategy, local government’s interest and the competition among several super oil/gas companies. The completed and operating pipelines form an important part of China’s expanding energy cooperation with Southeast Asia and South Asia.
