Eni, CNPC Sign Co-operation Accord

Eni said that it and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) signed a co-operation agreement in Rome, September 13.

The agreement covers oil and gas exploration and production, gas and LNG value chain opportunities, trading and logistics opportunities, refining and petrochemicals. The partnership will regard both China and overseas activities.

Signing took place in Rome at Eni's headquarters during a meeting between CNPC chairman Wang Yilin and Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi.
