China oil giant buys into North America

CNN Money -- A major Chinese oil producer has gained a big toehold in North America's energy market with a $15.1 billion acquisition of a Canadian company.

Calgary-based Nexen Inc. said Monday that it has agreed to be acquired by China's CNOOC Ltd. in a cash transaction. The deal values Nexen shares at $27.50 each, a 61% premium from Friday's closing price of $17.06.

Nexen's assets in North America include exploration and development in the Gulf of Mexico and shale oil development in British Columbia.
The company also has operations in the North Sea off the coast of Great Britain and off the coast of Nigeria.
Nexen said the deal will require the approval of regulators, including those in the United States. The deal is expected to close by the end of the year.

Yet AMERICAN AND CADAIAN companies are NOT ALLOWED to buy any Companies in CHINA. And CHINA is STOPPING certian raw materials like the METALS used in Lithium batteries from being exported, for their NATIONAL GOOD.

The 1% will sell everything for THEIR MONEY and the HELL with the rest of the people!

Just wait and see when China wants to control their assets. They will control world oil prices and make it easier for them to get more oil. pretty scary.

People continue to rebuke President Obama (and other pseudonym's) as the root cause of all the American problems. You might as well blame Groucho Marx or Charlie Chaplin, makes about as much sense!

With crude oil prices dropping and exploration costs increasing, the net margin is vanishing so for a company in this situation if given a chance, they'll sell, take the money and run! It's better than turning the wells off.

Tigerpaw - "China will manage to cut themselves a deal on paying for the oil they get even from the Gulf of Mexico"
China will pay the same as anybody else as the price of oil is controlled by the commodities exchange. It goes up and down during the day on the markets.
