China National Petroleum has become a major player in the oil industry, both by partnering with the governments of oil-rich nations such as Iraq and Qatar as well as by ramping up domestic oil and gas production. In 2011, CNPC produced 107.54 million tons of crude oil in China -- a 2% increase from the previous year -- the company stated in its 2011 financial report. Like many other oil companies, CNPC is also boosting its natural gas production. --S.D.
