South China Sea Oil and Natural Gas. The search for oil and natural gas is seen by some as a driving factor in rival claims to the South China Sea, but really it isn't. The South China Sea Problem. Oil plays a double role for growing tensions in the SCS. First, as outlined above, most of China’s oil moves through the province. This same oil is transported through other seas as well, but the SCS is special. Speaking to reporters after meeting with his Filipino counterpart, Alan Peter Cayetano, China’s foreign minister Wang Yi remarked that both countries will “…in a prudent and steady way advance cooperation on offshore oil and gas exploration.” “The South China Sea disputes will no longer be a source of negative energy blocking the South China Sea Tensions Leave Oil Potential Untapped Aggressive Chinese enforcement and ownership disputes have stalled exploration of the oil-rich sea National Oil Company-Exploration Corporation (PNOC) and private service contractors for oil exploration to represent the country. The joint exploration, if successful in finding oil and gas resources presumably in the disputed South China Sea (SCS), would pave the way for another cooperation agreement on the exploitation of resources found. This is the second product of the CSIS Expert Working Group on the South China Sea, which seeks to chart a feasible model for claimants to manage the maritime disputes. Competition for oil and gas resources has repeatedly triggered standoffs between claimants in the South China Sea in recent years, especially between China, the Philippines, and Vietnam. “India’s intention to once again explore for oil in the disputed waters of the South China Sea is an unwise move, as it will further complicate the maritime disputes and do a disservice to maintaining the positive momentum that has been achieved in China-India ties,” declared the state-run China Daily, as translated by the Times of India.

The U.S. Energy Information Agency estimates that the South China Sea holds about 190 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 11 billion barrels of oil in proved and probable reserves, most of which lie along the margins of the South China Sea rather than under disputed islets and reefs.
