CNOOC Limited announced that the company has obtained 10 new oil and gas discoveries offshore China. Within those 10 discoveries, 9 of them were founded independently.

Besides, through cooperation with other partner another discovery, Kenli20-1, was obtained.

Encouraged by the exploration results, CNOOC Ltd. has enhanced its exploration in new areas for the second half of the year. Up to now, this move has delivered promising results: there are 3 more independent discoveries founded, PanYu10-2, Panyu11-5 and Weizhou11-2. During the drilling operation, two discovery wells, Panyu10-2-1 and Weizhou11-2-1, encountered oil pay zones of accumulative 57 meters and 64 meters respectively, another discovery well Panyu11-5-1 hit 13-meter thick oil-bearing formations.

Kenli20-1, under PSC cooperation, has also been successfully evaluated. The evaluation result has shown Jinzhou25-1, Bozhong26-3 and Weizhou11-7 are likely to be built into mid to large oil and gas fields in the future. The recent discovery Weizhou11-2 also contains big potential.

For year 2007, productive exploration activities were carried out over Bohai Bay with 5 oil and gas discoveries.
