DESCRIPTION: During July 2014, a team led by Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy conducted several dozen interviews on Chinese shale gas policies. Individuals interviewed were from central government ministries, provincial government ministries, state-owned enterprises, independent oil and gas companies, oil and gas service companies, law firms, environmental groups, consultancies and universities. The team also surveyed the Chinese and English-language literature on the Chinese shale gas sector. Based on those interviews and that research, the team provides this report as a resource for discussions in the months and years ahead.
