    Wow, where they going to get the Natural Gas from? Their own domestic sources or imports? Could have a global impact on many fronts.

    Apparently China has significant shale formations that could be larger than those in the US.

    As I understand, these deposits may be more difficult to recover energy from vs the US, and these formations are out in the middle of now where--Significant infrastructure would be needed.

    Won't be tomorrow, and if present oil and gas prices remain low--There may be even less push to drill those formations for the near term.

    British Columbias' gov is pushing hard to get approval for another pipeline to the West Coast so that we can be a supplier for that consumption.... but the projects are getting hard resistance, we will just have to wait for the backroom boys to finish negotiations... also a lot of other players too
