Summary: While China's economy has boomed in recent decades, and while Russia has vast gas supplies in neighboring Siberia and Russian Far East, no gas pipelines cross their mutual border. Much of Russia's gas is a stranded supply. Even Alaska exported Cook Inlet gas to China in 2011. China is looking forward to increasing its use of natural gas, but political stalemates have stalled Russian-Chinese cooperation in this area. Prices have been an obstacle in Gazprom's plan to build a gas trunkline.

Notes: Includes a map of Russia's natural gas production centers and gas pipelines in Siberia and the Russian Far East and a map of China's oil and gas basins (in brown) showing the major gas (yellow) and oil (black) fields.
