ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the actions being taken by the Chinese government to search for energy security as its rising fuel consumption may likely to reach 2.6 billion barrels by 2010. Wang Le Quan, secretary of the Xinjiang Communist Party, admits that about 75% of the taxes collected from Xinjiang's oilfields go straight to the government. China is trying to use its presence and energy infrastructure in Xinjiang to expand its influence in the neighboring oil-rich countries of central Asia.
