This report attempts to project the balance between energy demand and supply for the 48 regional members of the Asian Development Bank. However, due to the unavailability of energy data, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and Tuvalu are not included in the study. The outlook results are presented by member, by subregion, and by region. Based on the projected energy demand and supply, carbon dioxide emissions and investment requirements are derived. These will offer a basis for policy making and development planning geared toward sustainable economic development in the regional members in Asia and the Pacific.

China has developed sophisticated hedging strategies to insure against risks in the international petroleum market. It has managed a growing net oil import gap and supply disruptions by maintaining a favorable energy mix, pursuing overseas equity oil production, building a state-owned tanker fleet and strategic petroleum reserve, establishing cross-border pipelines, and diversifying its energy resources and routes. Though it cannot be "secured," China's energy security can be "insured" by marrying government concern with commercial initiatives. This book comprehensively analyzes China's domestic, global, maritime, and continental petroleum strategies and policies, establishing a new theoretical framework that captures the interrelationship between security and profit. Arguing that hedging is central to China's energy-security policy, this volume links government concerns about security of supply to energy companies' search for profits, and by drawing important distinctions between threats and risks, peacetime and wartime contingencies, and pipeline and seaborne energy-supply routes, the study shifts scholarly focus away from securing and toward insuring an adequate oil supply and from controlling toward managing any disruptions to the sea lines of communication. The book is the most detailed and accurate look to date at how China has hedged its energy bets and how its behavior fits a hedging pattern.
