CNPC is still the physical face of Beijing’s never-ending global hunt for energy resources. It’s currently emerging from what might politely be called a transitional period, after a number of its past executives fell foul of the power struggle that President Xi Jinping refers to as an anti-corruption campaign. The company’s General Manager position was vacant for 16 months before it finally appointed industry veteran Zhang Jianhua in July. CNPC is officially trying to improve its governance and strengthen its balance sheet by opening up to private investors, but has little to show for it so far.
