On Aug. 16, a CNPC delegation attended the 10th anniversary celebration of Sino-Kazakh oil cooperation in Aktobe, Kazakhstan.
Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Kazakh Prime Minister Karim Massimov and Parliament Chairman Tokayev sent messages of congratulation. Aslan Musin, Deputy Prime Minister of Kazakhstan was present at the celebration.
Since 1997, China and Kazakhstan have given top priority to mutual benefit and common development in their oil cooperation. While explore and produce oil, CNPC has been working hard in protecting the environment and benefiting the local community. By setting up seismic, drilling and R&D centers with its Kazakh partners, CNPC has helped upgrade technical and managerial expertise in Kazakh oil industry. By strengthening standardized operation and corporate governance, a safe and clean operation has been ensured. We made donations to the construction of schools, hospitals and public facilities, and we also set education funds and sponsored sports events in Kazakhstan.
