CNPC plans to in­crease clean en­ergy ca­pac­ity

China Daily (Canada) - - HOLIDAY -

ni­tric diox­ide emis­sions to be re­duced by 46.7 per­cent and 40.8 per­cent re­spec­tively in five years, and the green­house emis­sions from do­mes­tic busi­ness to be re­duced by 6.1 per­cent and its coal con­sump­tion de­creased by 4.4 per­cent in the mean­time.

The com­pany will grad­u­ally boost do­mes­tic nat­u­ral gas out­put, im­port more clean en­ergy from abroad and ex­ploit un­con­ven­tional nat­u­ral gas to achieve rapid de­vel­op­ment of the sec­tor, Zhang said.

Con­struc­tion of nat­u­ral gas pipe­lines and re­lated fa­cil­i­ties will also be boosted, as China is push­ing for­ward non-fos­sil fuel en­ergy and high-qual­ity de­vel­op­ment to im­ple­ment the Paris Agree­ment and curb car­bon emis­sions, he said.

Zhang said as a re­spon­si­ble en­ergy com­pany, CNPC acts in strict com­pli­ance with the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment’s re­quire­ments on green­house gas emis­sion re­duc­tion, and ac­tively sup­ports and par­tic­i­pates in the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity’s ef­forts to ad­dress climate change.

“Ro­bust in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion is re­quired to com­bat climate change,” he said.


A CNPC gas sta­tion is un­der op­er­a­tion in Changling county, Jilin prov­ince. CNPC is now the nation’s largest oil and gas pro­ducer by do­mes­tic an­nual out­put.
