CNPC finds oil and gas shows in South China Sea

China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) has reported that the petroleum drilling and exploration operation of Zhongjiannan Project was completed smoothly and on schedule on July 15th with the oil & gas shows found.

In accordance with the work procedures of deep-sea petroleum exploration and development, a comprehensive assessment of hydrocarbon horizons is to be implemented based on the geological and analytical data collected through the drilling and exploration operation. Next phase arrangements are subject to the aforesaid comprehensive assessment.

Since 2004, China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) has been conducting geophysical prospecting activities mainly for seismic data acquisition in this sea area based on intensive and comprehensive geological study.

“We started drilling No.2 well on May 28th, and the drilling of this well completed today,” the company said in a release.
