Will China's Oil Demand Connect the BRICs?

China's oil demand growth is so fast, Usain Bolt gave up his Olympic medal to it!

All kidding aside, the growth numbers for Chinese oil demand are staggering: 44% of the world's oil demand growth over the past 10 years came from China. To meet that demand, it has increasingly looked to the fellow BRIC countries -- which stands for Brazil, Russia, India, and China -- to satisfy that demand. Between the $270 billion deal PetroChina (NYSE: PTR  ) just signed with Rosneft and the increased presence in Brazil, Chinese oil companies are trying to stake claims in some of the most promising oil and gas regions.
