Qian, X., 2020. Security of China's marine energy transportation channels and american factors. In: Hu, C. and Cai, M. (eds.), Geo-informatics and Oceanography. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 105, pp. 84–88. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.
In recent years, China has built multiple parallel lines of land, oil, and gas pipelines and marine transportation channels through The Belt and Road initiative to form an energy transportation network that includes railways, highways, marine transportation, and oil and gas pipelines to achieve the diversification of China's energy import channels. The United States is sensitive and anxious about the growth of China's strength. It has promoted the Asia–Pacific Rebalancing strategy, implemented the concept of air–sea warfare combat, and proposed the Indo-Pacific strategy, which have a major impact on the safety of China's maritime energy transportation channels. China and the United States coexist in competition and cooperation in the security of the marine energy transportation channels. The prospect of U.S.–China interaction in the marine energy channels depends on the choices and efforts of both parties. It is necessary for both parties to jointly improve the process of interaction and seize opportunities for peace.
