What question or industry issue are you looking forward to hearing about at the China Energy Assembly?
- oil demand and supply in the near future
- global gas supply and the LNG requirement
- shale and tight oil & gas commercial production beyond North American
- geopolitical issues related to the oil and gas
What are your, and your company’s objectives for 2019?
As an petroleum and chemical company, Sinopec must make its effort to satisfy the investors. For the coming years, I think Sinopec is going to optimize the assets structure and introduce the private. investments to participate the operations. For the overseas operations, Sinopec is going to purchase the suitable assets and sale the current operating assets which does not matched the company’s strategies.
In your tenure at Sinopec so far, what has been the greatest challenge you have faced?
As the overseas assets evaluating expert, the greatest challenges I have faced are:
- First, the assets data is not enough and the time is short for us to make the final value decision.
- Second, we are not familiar with the assets type, such as the oilfield which was offshore and the unconventional.
- Third, the oil price is critical for the assets value, and the price is related to a lot of factors which are difficult to predict.
What game-changing discovery / project / technology is currently making waves?
- The North American shale oil and gas commercial production
- The geopolitical issues related to the rich petroleum resources countries
- The renewable and the new energy development
