Reported that the United States: the United States in 2035 is expected to completely get rid of the oil from the Middle East
According to the United States, "Wall Street Journal reported, an energy analyst forecasts, due to declining demand and the Western Hemisphere new sources of oil has increased rapidly, the United States in 2020, the quantity of oil imported from the Middle East to cut to half, and possibly before 2035 to rid itself of dependence on Middle Eastern oil. In contrast, China and the Middle East oil but it will become increasingly dependent. The changes in this situation may change the geopolitical situation in the region.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration said in 2020, U.S. production for crude oil will be able to meet nearly half of domestic demand, of which 82% of the resources from the West Bank Atlantic. Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries is expected to 2035, oil shipments from the Middle East to North America almost completely disappeared, partly because of more energy-efficient car engines and renewable fuels will help to inhibit the demand for oil. This shift is also due to be released due to technical progress, the rock formations of shale, oil sands and the ocean floor depths of oil resources. This is a large part thanks to the hydraulic fracturing technology. In the past 10 years, the hydraulic fracturing technology gradually improved, so that the past is not optimistic about the United States the oilfield thus been developed.
This change U.S. policy makers is a long-sought goal: to get more from the surrounding areas and a stable source of oil, reducing oil dependency on the remote and volatile region.
Pascual, the highest officials of the U.S. Department of State in charge of energy affairs, said in an interview once some concern that Middle East oil supply disruptions, the U.S. ability to maintain a sustainable supply of oil, but now the situation has changed.
U.S. officials stressed that the Middle East in U.S. foreign policy is still in an important position, in part because the region will continue to impact on global oil prices. Pascual said: "We need to continue to focus on the functioning of the global market, because the stability of the market in line with our fundamental interests." This means that the U.S. military will follow the practice for decades, continued to defend the safety of oil transport routes in the region.
The revival of the U.S. oil will lead to lower oil prices boost the U.S. economy in the global economic slowdown may dampen demand when the mouth.
Analysts pointed out that the situation in China is just the opposite. Further in the United States rely on domestic supply to meet the energy needs of the occasion is expected that China will remain heavily dependent on Middle Eastern oil. The Chinese Government is exert an important influence on the Middle East from the perspective of commerce, foreign affairs, etc., to strengthen the relationship with traditional American allies, such as Saudi Arabia and Iraq and other emerging energy producers.
In addition, China is considering oil imports from the Middle East and elsewhere to make up the gap caused by Iran's exports to China's oil gradually reduce the number, while alleviating concerns about the Sudanese may occur long-term political instability generated by its oil supply.
Customs data show that now about 50% of China's total crude oil imports from the Middle East. Analysts say the medium term, this proportion is unlikely to slow drastically. According to the International Energy Agency predicts that by 2035 China's daily net oil imports may more than 1200 barrels and 2010 imports only about 500 million barrels.
