FORUM 3 - 2001
September 11-12, 2001, Diaoyutai Hotel, Bejing, China
The Third U.S./China Oil & Gas Industry Forum, took place in Beijing,
September 11, 2001. The second day of this meeting was canceled; however,
proceedings for the entire two-day agenda are posted on this website.
The Forum continued to use a panel-discussion format, facilitating
open dialogue. Discussions were focused around three themes - National
Energy Policies and Plans, Regulatory Issues, and The Specifics of
Implementation. In addition, several case study sessions examined natural
gas contracts, clean transportation fuels in the U.S., and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency's project, Expanding Natural Gas Utilization
in China. The third Forum initiated participation by the U.S. Trade
and Development Agency (TDA) and led to a new natural gas training
institute, funded for two years by TDA and China’s State Development
and Reform Commission. Please see the agenda for more Forum details.
