Chinanews, Beijing., November 6 – PetroChina announced on November 5 that it had arranged to import 100 thousand tons of oil by the end of last October to meet the urgent demand in the domestic market.
Meanwhile, PetroChina is working hard to boost its own diesel oil production, despite the fact that the low temperature in winter might pose great challenges to both the production and transportation processes.
It is said that PetroChina’s plan for the 4th quarter of 2007 involves a much higher goal than last year, as at least 2.13 million tons more of crude oil will be processed, and the oil product storage of PetroChina will reach 150 thousand tons, which will be put in the market very soon.
PetroChina will also accelerate the building of 10-million-ton-scale oil and storages in Dushanzi, Dalian and Guangxi, to the oil industrial structure.
With the arrival of winter, the demand for diesel oil will be eased, and its price might drop by then.

Such families are considered to be the of a stable and well-off society, thus it is the central government’s top concern to increase the number of middle-income families.
“If the income of the Chinese people keeps growing, say, at 7% every year, the goal will definitely be met by 2020. Actually, 78% of urban families will reach the standard by then, and the proportion in rural areas will be 30%,” said Zheng.

Nov.7 - China's major oil producers and traders were urged again on Tuesday by the central government to exercise self-discipline and to be reasonable in price-setting in the wake of rising market prices for the product.
In a harshly-worded statement, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the nation's top economic planning agency which price affairs and other economic and social matters, said edible oil producers and traders would face punishment, including fines of up to 300,000 yuan (US,000), and have their business for of price laws and regulations.
Major edible oil executives and leaders were summoned to Beijing on Monday by the commission for a closed door meeting where the government asked them to step up production to in the soaring market prices, the commission said in a statement made public late on Monday.
A NDRC official who asked not to be identified, said it was understandable for the edible oil processing firms to raise prices as a continuous rise in the prices of raw materials had increased their production costs.
Rough statistics from various regions revealed the prices of domestic edible oils rose 20 percent from November last year to June as prices for peanuts and other oil-bearing crops rose.
However, the latest weekly market monitoring report by the of Commerce showed the prices of cooking oil fluctuated only slightly between Oct. 22 to Oct. 28. The price of peanut oil edged up 0.1 percent from a week earlier, while rapeseed oil was down 0.1 percent. Soybean and blended oils were basically the same.
In a statement made after the meeting, the NDRC spelled out five requests, including increasing the supply of more small-packaged oils to meet market demand.
In addition, oil processors were not allowed to disturb market order or stoke up fear for price hikes by raw materials, rigging raw material supplies, cutting production or restricting supply.
Price hikes must be kept within reasonable and be made when absolutely necessary, it said, adding that oil processors must enhance cost controls, improve management and absorb the costs from raw materials as much as possible.
The NDRC also warned large cooking oil not to collude in setting prices or to provide short measures or shoddy products.
Under current price conditions, enterprises should transfer part of their interests to the people and cherish their public reputation, it said.
Industrial associations were also required to provide guidance to firms, make sure they abided laws and regulations, enterprises in cases of unfair competition, and to keep market informed of malpractice.
If the price hikes exceeded the extra production costs market supervisors would step in, it warned.
China's consumer price index, a key measure of inflation, rose by 6.2 percent in September after hitting an 11-year high of 6.5 percent in August. Food prices, which contribute significantly to CPI, jumped 16.9 percent from January to September over the same period last year, according to the National Bureau of Statistics.
