PetroChina is a Hong Kong-listed subsidiary of the mainland's state-run China National Petroleum Corp., known as CNPC. The parent company has played a leading role in China's oil industry and energy strategy since the Ministry of Petroleum Industry became CNPC in 1988. The CNPC chairman has power equivalent to Chinese government cabinet members.
PetroChina's core businesses are development and production of crude oil and natural gas. It is one of the world's largest oil companies. Its domestic rivals include state-owned enterprise China Petrochemical, also known as Sinopec.
Zhou Yongkang, a disgraced former member of the Chinese Communist Party's Politburo Standing Committee, worked at CNPC. Under Chinese President Xi Jinping's anti-corruption drive, the government cracked down on senior officials at PetroChina.
PetroChina has aggressively expanded its business in Sudan, Libya, Iraq, Syria and other war-torn or dangerous areas, where major U.S. and European companies hesitate to invest. After entering into such markets, however, many projects have failed amid worsening public security. The company has recently scaled down its resource investment, in line with China's "new normal" of slower growth under Xi.
A big challenge for PetroChina is transparency. The company took on 60% of CNPC's total assets when it went public. CNPC accounts for slightly more than 80% of PetroChina's outstanding shares. PetroChina's management does not appear to be influenced by shareholders.
