Sino-Russian Oil and Gas Cooperation: Heading for a Restart?

The collapse of the oil price took the wind out of the Sino-Russian gas deals concluded in May and November 2014, and cooperation on oil and gas now struggles to gain momentum. While the depressed oil price and sluggish Chinese economy are affecting the level of the cooperation significantly, they look unlikely to derail it entirely. The big question now is whether a partial recovery by the oil price between 2016 and 2017 can push Sino-Russian cooperation onto a new strategic level.
