Sinopec discovers huge natural gas field in China
However, the Chinese oil refining enterprise is yet to confirm the discovery officially. The newly discovered gas field, which is said to be the largest natural gas field in Asia, is initially estimated to hold reserves of more than 120 billion cubic meters of natural gas, according to a report from the Chengdu Commercial News citing an unnamed official from the Chongqing government.
Tehran Times said that Sinopec is investigating a newspaper report that the company has discovered Asia’s biggest natural gas field in the country.
A spokesman from the Sinopec Group confirmed that the company was not yet certain whether it had found a large gas field in Chongqing in southwest China, the Chongqing Evening News reported.
While China Daily reported that Huang Wensheng, the spokesman of Sinopec, said that figure was only based on estimation, and that exploration work is still at a very preliminary stage.
