The US House of Representatives has voted for a measure opposing CNOOC's bid for the US oil exploration group Unocal. . . Congress voted 398 to 15 for a non-binding resolution that called for the US government to block the $18.5 billion bid by China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC). . . The resolution said oil and gas are "strategic assets" and that a Chinese state-run firm's takeover "would threaten to impair the national security of the United States." http://www.rte.ie/business/2005/0701/unocal.html
