CHINA SETS UP NEW STATE BODY TO DRILL DEEP FOR OIL AND GAS RESERVES




China is setting up a new entity that groups national oil producers and other state firms to search for ultra-deep oil and gas reserves and tackle harder-to-extract non-conventional resources. This is in answer to President Xi Jinping's call for the sector to have "new productive forces" that will contribute to the country's energy security.

In addition to CNPC and Sinopec, the country's two dominant producers of oil and gas, the new body gathers seven other state groups including China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp, steel group Baowu, equipment builder Sinomach, Dongfang Electric Group and Minmetals.
