CNPC to increase output of oil and gas

China National Petroleum Corp, the State-owned energy giant, is planning to ramp up oil and gas output to more than 200 million metric tons of oil equivalent this year, while looking to raise the share of natural gas output to a record high of 50 percent.The company announced the annual goal during its work conference for 2020 held on Tuesday in Beijing. It plans to invest 5 billion yuan ($726 million) this year on oil and gas exploration.Natural gas capacity at CNPC's Tarim Oilfield and Southwest oil and gas field will exceed 30 billion cubic meters, while shale gas production will surpass 11

China opens up oil and gas exploration, production to foreign firms

China will for the first time allow foreign companies to explore for and produce oil and gas in the country, opening up the industry to firms other than state-run energy giants as Beijing looks to boost domestic energy supplies.The long-awaited opening comes alongside Beijing’s reshuffle in the so-called “midstream” pipeline business, but experts say the policy relaxation may not draw immediate interest from international drillers due to overall poor asset quality of China’s hydrocarbon resources.From May 1, 2020, foreign firms registered in China with net assets no lower than 300 million yuan

【ECF News】Oil & gas exploration and development in China: why is it difficult for new entrants?

Oil & gas exploration and development is a high-risk industry. Hundreds of millions could be invested with nothing coming out. Therefore, engaging in oil and gas exploration and development requires sufficient financial strength and anti-risk ability, in addition to the corresponding technology and experience. In these respects, many new entrants are seriously inadequate compared with the oil majors.As China's oil and gas system reform continues to deepen, the opening door to oil and gas exploration and development is also widening.From the Ministry of Natural Resources's (formerly the Ministr
