CNPC in Peru

CNPC entered Peru’s oil and gas market in 1993. As one of the largest crude oil producers and oilfield service providers in Peru, CNPC invests in and operates three blocks in the country, i.e. Block 6/7, Block 10/57/58 and Block 8.

We carry out oil and gas business in Peru following the principle of "mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation for common development". In addition to promoting local socioeconomic development, we pay constant attention to the impact of industrial development on the living environment of local residents, and looks for ways to strike a balance between oil and gas development and protection of the Amazon rainforest for sustainable development.
