Phantom fears surround China’s Nexen deal

The Globe and Mail -- At first blush, CNOOC Ltd.’s $15.1-billion bid for Nexen Inc. seemed like a sign that China is ready to go on a buying spree in Canada’s oil patch.

But on a closer look that seems far from certain. If Beijing thinks Nexen will open the door to a rash of big North American energy acquisitions by its state-controlled enterprises, it may want to think again.
For starters, Canada could still block the Nexen deal – China’s biggest ever foreign takeover bid. The proposed deal needs to be approved by quasi-independent competition authorities and the government itself, which must decide whether it provides a “net benefit” to Canada.

Phantom it's not. China would love to take over the USA & Canada for both our resources. Which they are well on their way to doing exactly that. With their population they could deplete both nations before you knew it.

Using "Phantom fears..." in the article headline is just code for --

"Hey, we want HIGHER PROFITS!! -- Let's publicize fear-mongering b.s. so the speculators will go nuts with 'fearful uncertainty' and BID UP THE PRICES AGAIN!"

This is a crap article!

If we got this deal we would just sell it to China any way or just give it to them.

if china's government owned cnooc is permitted to buy nexen, then there will be a guaranteed shipper of product for a very expensive trans canadien rockies pipeline to the pacific and probable investor in the same as well.

and they are buying it all with the dollars they got from your bought at walmart made in china crap.

@INBwana --"Does anyone from GassBuddy monitor these replies?"

Ok, so you ranted but never said anything about the article. At least we one word posters are efficient in our useless point earning responses.

No problem, China simply buys off those who have to approve the deal. Our politicians have all been bought off with campaign contributions, why should Canada be any different?

Does anyone from GassBuddy monitor these replies?

What a waste of time the responders are when they have nothing more to say but; "OK", "Great", "Fascinating", GOOD and other one or two word responses. Seems that is what is wrong with a lot of our population, they really have nothing to say, not educated enough and/or are afraid to speak out! Guess they just want the 20 points for their worthless inputs!

I think GasBuddy should dock them 50 points for every such worthless responses. I really enjoy reading responses and opinions that most of our members input.
