According to Mubadala, the agreement identifies possible areas for collaboration in the upstream oil and gas sector outside of the United Arab Emirates and, especially, new and existing projects comprising onshore conventional projects, offshore projects and LNG projects.

Musabbeh Al Kaabi, CEO, Mubadala Petroleum, said, “This Agreement reflects a growing level of dialogue between ourselves and CNPC, both nationally-owned companies with expanding international interests. We welcome the continued strengthening of links between countries and companies across the traditional trading routes of the Middle East and Asia, a region where Mubadala Petroleum already has well-established operations.”

Li Yueqiang, Director-General of International Department, CNPC, said, “Based on the successful story of CNPC’s presence inside the UAE, I am convinced that this agreement will be very conducive to further expanding our collaboration with the Abu Dhabi partners on a global scale. CNPC is poised to work closely with Mubadala Petroleum to make substantive progress soon, delivering value to both our companies.”

Mubadala Petroleum operates a several producing assets in South East Asia. The latest of these is Nong Yao, which is located in the Gulf of Thailand and came on stream in June 2015. The company is now the second largest black oil producer in Thailand. It also has several other projects under appraisal and development in the region.
