Abstrakt

This study, firstly, analyzes the 25-year domestic reform process of the energy sector, that took place in China from the early 1980s, in order to determine the extent to which it changed the state-business interactions of Chinese National Oil Companies (NOCs). This is done in furtherance of fully contextualizing the influence of this relationship upon the strategy of Chinese NOCs’ internationalization, as illustrated in the case of China National Petroleum Corporation’s (CNPC) entry onto the Sudanese oil market and subsequent outbidding by China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) for an oil pipeline construction project in Blocks 3 and 7 of the Melut Basin.
