    China considers massive energy pipelines spin-off

    South China Morning Post
    Beijing is looking at stripping its top energy companies of their oil and gas pipelines, as part of sweeping reforms that would see the assets spun off into independent businesses. The National Development and Reform Commission has held talks on the sale of the assets with the biggest pipeline owners and the utilities that buy fuel, but a final decision on the plan has not been made. The assets are worth up to $300 billion. While China's oil and gas pipeline network of about 120,000 kilometres is only a fifth of the size of the natural gas network in the US, it will be bigger than the US set-up by 2040.

    Siberian gas deal a sign of Moscow's tilt towards Beijing

    Nikkei Asian Review
    President Xi Jinping, in Moscow to attend WWII commemorations, has just held his 12th summit with Vladimir Putin in two years. The two have declared their relationship is as close as ever.
