Exploration & Production in China

We have a 49% interest in the huge South Sulige gas field in Inner Mongolia.

We have also formed a number of partnerships with Chinese national companies active in exploration and production outside their home country.

Gas and Power in China

We meet some of China's demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) through long-term contracts and spot sales.

In 2011, we signed a master agreement with ChinaOil, PetroChina's trading arm, to deliver spot LNG as needed to the Rudong and Dalian terminals, located in Jiangsu and Liaoning provinces, respectively.

We signed a sale and purchase agreement for up to 1 million metric tons a year of LNG with oil company CNOOC. The agreement will remain in force until 2025.

We also signed a supply agreement with ENN LNG Trading Company for the delivery of 0.5 million tonnes per year of liquefied natural gas (LNG) for a period of 10 years. The deliveries are expected to begin in 2018 upon completion of ENN’s Zhoushan LNG receiving terminal.

Refining & Chemicals in China

We have a 22.4% interest in the Wepec refinery in Dalian, a seaport on the Bohai Sea, 600 kilometers east of Beijing.

We have a polystyrene plant in Foshan and another in Ningbo, both near Shanghai.

We are active in the hydrocarbon resins sector through Cray Valley HSC.

In specialty chemicals, our elastomer processing affiliate Hutchinson has four local facilities, which market body sealing and fluid transfer systems as well as anti-vibration products, precision sealing, transmission and manufacturing products.

We also market petrochemicals from our joint ventures in South Korea (Daesan complex) and Qatar.
