    WASHINGTON, Jan 14 (Reuters) - The U.S. Commerce Department said Thursday it added Chinese National Overseas Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to a U.S. economic blacklist, saying it had helped China intimidate neighbors in the South China Sea.

    Commerce also said Chinese company Skyrizon was being added to the Military End-User (MEU) List for "its capability to develop, produce, or maintain military items, such as military aircraft engines." (Reporting by David Shepardson Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
