The Chinese playerโ€™s latest project consists of Lufeng 8-1 oilfield, Lufeng 9-2 oilfield, and Lufeng 14-8 oilfield. According to the company, one new drilling platform has been built and 14 development wells are planned to be put into production, including 13 production wells and 1 water-injection well.
