Report

During July 2014, a team led by Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy conducted several dozen interviews on Chinese shale gas policies. Individuals interviewed were from central government ministries, provincial government ministries, state-owned enterprises, independent oil and gas companies, oil and gas service companies, law firms, environmental groups, consultancies and universities. The team also surveyed the Chinese and English-language literature on the Chinese shale gas sector. Based on those interviews and that research, the team provides this report as a resource for discussions in the months and years ahead.

Global Energy Dialogue

On June 2, Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy, Sustainable Engineering Lab, and Global Center-Africa, along with the United Nations’ Sustainable Energy for All, hosted a workshop on the potential for the regional use of East Africa’s natural gas. The workshop, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, ahead of the U.S.-Africa Energy Ministerial, brought together energy ministers and senior officials from East and South Africa as well as representatives from the government of the United States, NGOs, industry, academia, and leading energy consultancies. The event presented new research by the Sustainable Engineering Lab of Columbia University on the opportunities and challenges for developing East Africa’s natural gas and the value proposition for regional utilization of the resource across sectors of demand (power generation, home cooking, transportation, and fertilizer production).

The event summary highlights the key points made by participants without attribution to any specific participant in accordance with the Chatham House Rule nature of the roundtable.
