China, India partnering to challenge OPEC

India and China, which together accounted for almost 17% of world oil consumption last year, are working on combining their shopping carts with a view to challenging OPEC's capability to play havoc with crude prices and seek better bargains from the cartel of oil-exporting countries, especially its West Asian members.
The two sides kicked off formal talks in Beijing recently in relation to forming an oil buyers' club. 
The development is likely to weigh on OPEC energy ministers, who are expected to discuss a plan to end the production cut deal later this month.
