The Group will also forge strategic partnership with and supplement the service capacity of state-owned oilfield services companies as a key business development strategy.

In the overseas market, thanks to the accelerated E&P spending of Chinese investors, technical services demand in the overseas market remains robust. The Group will adhere to the "follow-up" strategy and strengthen the position in existing markets, further increasing business volume in the Middle East region, making every effort to push ahead with the Latin American market strategy, while starting cooperation with other national oil companies.
