Message from the President

Dear Friends,
Energy is the cornerstone, the lifeline of a nation's economy. As a China-based international company, ZhenHua Oil has been committed, since incorporation, to meeting ever growing domestic demand for energy. Over the years, ZhenHua Oil has given full play to its advantages in marketing, financing, petroleum operations and corporate governance to acquire oil and gas resources and develop jointly with partners upside potential. The Company has also been active in crude oil and oil products trading. As the outcome of constant and strenuous effort, ZhenHua Oil has achieved rapid growth; meanwhile, it has assembled a complete industry chain, ranging from E&P abroad, to research, to international oil trading, to petroleum logistics, and to refining. Throughout the over-100-year history of the oil industry, the growth of an oil company has usually been due to the prosperity of an emerging oil consuming market. Chinas booming economy and surging energy demand have provided the historical context for ZhenHua Oils growth. Looking toward to the future, ZhenHua Oil will stay based in China but keep a global perspective in pursuing mutually beneficial cooperation, sharing with partners in the benefits of development and working together for a better future.

Liu Yijiang President
