In 2020, 2023 and 2024, the Company has gradually brought on-stream Bozhong 19-6 Condensate Gas Field Pilot Area Development Project, Phase I Development Project and 13-2 Block 5 Well Site Development Project. The gas field is currently producing approximately 37,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The Bozhong 19-6 Condensate Gas Field D1 Well was drilled to a depth of 6,088 meters. It is the first ultra-deep well of the Company in Bohai Bay, which is producing approximately 6,300 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Mr. Sun Fujie, Vice President of the Company, said, "The high yield well further confirms the promising potential of offshore deep buried hill plays. The exploration and development of oil and gas resources in the deep plays is expected to accelerate. With the new production, the Company is continuously bolstering its ability to supply clean energy to the Bohai Economic Rim".
