Title: Fossil Energy Resources of China: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Luo Zhetan, Zhao Xiafei

Article Type: Meeting abstract


China's sources of energy including fossil energy resources have been inventoried from the standpoint of their geological setting. An order of preference for development has been determined, with coal in first place, followed by water-power and, finally, petroleum. Since resources of coal and waterpower are relatively well known, oil and gas are currently the subjects of research emphasis. The habitat of oil and gas fields and the prospects for locating additional reserves are being related to the tectonic framework of the country.
