PetroChina Reportedly Looking For Partners For Oil And Gas Field Stakes In Xinjiang

PetroChina Co. Ltd. (SEHK:857) plans to sell oil and gas field stakes to local investors in the northwest province of Xinjiang as part of government efforts to bring growth and jobs to the restive region, reported Bloomberg citing company officials. China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) is looking for partners with around CNY 10 billion to invest in exploration and production ventures, the people said, asking not to be named as the plan isn’t public. PetroChina owns most of China National Petroleum's oil and gas fields in Xinjiang and will handle the offer of stakes in at least two large untapped oil and gas fields this year, the people said, declining to identify the fields or their size. Qu Guangxue, CNPC’s Beijing-based spokesman, did not answer two calls from Bloomberg to his office seeking comment. The people also said that partners would be limited to companies backed by the Xinjiang government or Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps. The people added that any joint ventures would pay taxes to Xinjiang not the central government. Lin Boqiang, Director of the Energy Economics Research Center at Xiamen University and an Independent Director of PetroChina said, "CNPC is heeding to a national call in Xinjiang." Lin said that setting up joint ventures would help the company diversify its shareholding structure and boost earnings by unleashing untapped reserves. The two people said that CNPC may also allow companies to independently operate its proven oil and gas fields in Xinjiang.
