The spill happened after two pipelines exploded at an oil storage depot at the port of Dalian run by the China National Petroleum Corp.parent of the worlds most valuable company by market capitalisationPetroChina As early as 2006the accident site had been deemed an environmental risk by local authorities The incident triggered a spectacular blaze that burned for three dayssending an acrid stench across the northeastern metropolisa regular winner in polls for Chinas most livable city Just days after the explosion the International Energy Agency said China was now the worlds largest energy consumernot the United States The historic shift comes years ahead of forecastsas Chinas energy use has more than doubled in less than a decade The IEA said Chinas 2009 consumption of energy from oil and coal to wind and solar power was equal to 2265 billion tonnes of oil The United States used 2169 billion tonnes last year Per capitathoughthe Americans still consume five times more energy Last year China became the worlds largest car market In August 2009 alone Beijingers bought more new cars than the whole American population And yet China has just one-twentieth as many cars per person as the United Stateswith Mckinseythe management consulting firmestimating the number of automobiles on Chinas roads will more than triple by 2020 Beijing quibbled over the IEA numbers Neverthelessthe statistical haze was brought into sharp clarity days later with figures from Chinas own environmental protection ministry The number of environmental accidents rose 98 per cent in the first six months of the yearaccording to the ministryas demand for energy and minerals lead to poisoned rivers and oil spills in the country that is now the worlds largest polluter Fast economic development is leading to increasing conflicts with the capacity of the environment to absorb demandsthe ministry said in a statement late last month It added that air quality deteriorated for the first time in five years in the first six months of this year The last two decades have seen oil supplies become a top national security priority In January 2009Chinas dependence on imported foreign oil reached 50 per cent for the first time This dependency will only grow neither Chinanor India for that matterhave significant untapped oil reserves to call upon; their economic growth will continue to vastly outstrip their ability to increase domestic oil production Importing the bulk of their energy requirements is now a fact of life for the worlds two most populous nations Between 2004 and 2009China accounted for fully 40 per cent of the total increase in world oil consumptiona key factor in the rising oil prices seen during that period Beijing knows that any long-term interruption to oil supplies would leave the country hostage to foreign interestscause chaos in its manufacturing industry and throw millions out of work ThusChina has embarked on an effort to build up its shipyards and merchant fleetand is increasing strategic investment in certain port areaspredominantly in the Indian Ocean Beijing wants China to be the worlds largest shipbuilder by 2015and to have 40 per cent of all the countrys oil imports carried on Chinese vessels by that date A decade ago there was just one shipyard in China capable of building the largest tankers Nowthe country has a dozen yards easily capable of building mammoth ships In the year 2000Chinas fleet carried only 67 per cent of the countrys crude oil imports; that share surged to 20 per cent in 2005 The 40 per cent goal is likely to be reached in 2011four years ahead of scheduleas almost fortnightly deliveries of new tankers currently are made to Chinese owners Yet quality remains an issue shoddy workmanship makes many Chinese-built ships environmental time bombs China also has dramatically sped up the construction of large oil terminals above 200000 dead weight tonnes In the year 2000there were still only three large oil terminals for the entire country By the end of 2009China had built 13 oil terminals of 200000 dead weight tonnes and abovewith a capacity to handle 282 million tonnes of oil In the space of decade China has built up an incredible array of infrastructure to handle its seaborne oil trade No one has ever assembled a tanker fleet or string of terminals of such scale in a similar time frame
