Twenty Years' Reform and Development in SINOPEC

During 1983-2003 SINOPEC has stood the test in the reform of state-owned enterprises and the upsurge of the market economy and achieved a historic leap forward. In
February 1983 China decided to establish China Petrochemical Corporation and exercise centralized leadership, overall planning and unified management to major oil refining, petrochemical and chemical fiber enterprises. On July 12 of the same year China Petrochemical Corporation composed of 39 enterprises and institutions in various regions of the country was officially set up and the petrochemical industry in China started a completely new stage of development. After its establishment, China Petrochemical Corporation conducted the expansion of financing channels and organized the construction of major projects. By 1990, Qilu, Yangzi and Shanghai and large chemical fertilizer projects in Zhenhai, Urumqi and Ningxia were completed and put on stream. Oil refining projects in Luoyang, Guangzhou and Zhenhai and the second-phase project in Shanghai Petrochemical Co., Ltd. also started production. The crude oil processing capacity increased from 95.88 million tons to 124.0 million tons a year and the ethylene production capacity increased from 595 000 tons to 1.82 million tons a year.

In the 1990s China Petrochemical Corporation became an enterprise group, conducted internationalized, diversified and joint stock operations. Shanghai Petrochemical Co., Ltd., Zhenhai Refining and Chemical Co., Ltd., Yanshan Petrochemical Co., Ltd., Qilu Petrochemical Co., Ltd. and Yangzi Petrochemical Co., Ltd. conducted overall or local institutional shifts, issued stocks overseas to collect funds and transformed mechanisms to promote development. In major project construction, efforts were concentrated on the completion of Anqing acrylic fiber project, Fujian oil refining project, Liaoyany Chemical second-phase project, Maoming ethylene project, Jiujiang chemical fertilizer project and a group of projects for deep processing and storage/transportation. The experience gained in Yanshan ethylene renovation and Zhenhai oil refining renovation was spread and the ethylene renovation in Yangzi, Shanghai, Qilu and Daqing was completed. In market accession, two markets and two resources both at home and abroad were used to expand crude oil import, promote production and marketing integration, vigorously develop new products and encourage enterprises to make access to markets. In technical progress, the input in technical research was further increased, the institutional reform in science and technology was deepened and by 2000 a group of catalysts for oil refining and chemical production reached the world advanced level of the same period.

With the acceleration of economic globalization at the turn of the century, the central government decided to conduct strategic reformation to the petroleum and chemical industry. In
July 1998 SINOPEC Corporation and CNPC Corporation were established at the same time and the integration between upstream and downstream, internal trade and external trade and production and marketing was achieved in both companies. It was another milestone in the development history of the petroleum and chemical industry in China.

After its establishment, SINOPEC Corporation further changed concepts, transformed mechanisms, deepened reforms, accelerated developments and improved returns. In February 2000 SINOPEC Corporation put main businesses and excellent assets together to form SINOPEC Co., Ltd. through overall reformation and institutional shift. From October 2000 to August 2001 SINOPEC Co., Ltd. issued H-shares and A-shares in both domestic and overseas stock markets, got listed in New York, Hong Kong, London and Shanghai, achieved diversification in stock structure and entered domestic and overseas capital markets. During 2000-2002 SINOPEC Co., Ltd. reduced staff to further increase labor productivity.

Meanwhile, according to the new features in integrated industrial chain, oil price and international market linkage, SINOPEC Corporation optimized development strategies in resources, marketing, investment, science and technology and human resources and made great efforts in expanding resources and markets, reducing costs and making cautious investments. The economic performance was greatly improved, the industrial structure was gradually readjusted and the overall risk-withstanding ability was enhanced.

In oil/gas exploration and development, a balance between reserves and production and a stable oil/gas output increase have been achieved in old zones in the east for 6 consecutive years, strategic breakthroughs have been made in new zones in the west and the resource succession has been improved. In oil refining and chemical production, the oil refining renovation such as sour crude processing and oil product quality upgrading and especially the second-round ethylene production renovation in Yanshan, Shanghai and Yangzi have been completed and the market competitiveness has been further enhanced.

In oil product marketing, the terminal network has been vigorously developed and the market competitiveness has been remarkably enhanced through acquisition, construction and renovation.

In the new situation after the WTO accession, SINOPEC Corporation further expanded and intensified its cooperation with large foreign companies. It will on the one hand introduce foreign capital and advanced technologies and management experiences to jointly construct world-class petrochemical projects, and expand international markets.

Through twenty years' reform and development, SINOPEC has constantly built up its economic strength and gradually enhanced its market competitiveness. In 1983 China Petrochemical Corporation confined its business to oil refining and chemical production. Its total asset value was RMB21.0 billion, the sales revenue was RMB27.2 billion and the profit and tax was RMB10.7 billion. In 2002 its total asset value was RMB576.9 billion, the sales revenue was RMB378.0 billion and the profit and tax was RMB54.3 billion.

Click here to see a Map of Kazakhstan!Click on the image to see a Map of Kazakhstan.

The company has been involved in joint ventures in Kazakhstan since 1991 and participated in the country's first major oil and gas privatization in November 1996. PetroKazakhstan purchased a state-owned oil production company, Yuzhneftegaz, now renamed PetroKazakhstan Kumkol Resources.

In 2000, PetroKazakhstan purchased the downstream company Shymkentnefteorgsyntez (ShNOS), now renamed PetroKazakhstan Oil Products (PKOP), and became the largest private integrated oil company in Kazakhstan.

As of January 1, 2005 PetroKazakhstan's proved and probable oil equivalent reserves were independently assessed at 550 million barrels. PetroKazakhstan's crude oil production is either refined in the Shymkent refinery and sold as refined products predominately in the Kazakhstani market or sold into the export market. Future exports continue to be investigated and pursued.

The KAM pipeline, a PetroKazakhstan 177 kilometre pipeline, began operating in June 2003. This pipeline enhances transportation options by eliminating 1,300 kilometes of circuitous movement and has led to transportation cost savings.

PetroKazakhstan has built and fully commissioned a 55-megawatt gas power plant at its field operations which reduces gas emissions and improves the local environment.

In its downstream operations PetroKazakhstan continues to enhance the product state of the refinery. The start up of the Vacuum Distillation Unit in January 2004 has led to a lower yield of heavy fuel oil.
