The most downstream of China’s big three energy companies (alongside CNPC and CNOOC) Sinopec is more a producer of petrochemicals, fuels, and lubricants than an exploration and production company (although it crops up repeatedly as a mooted buyer of other E&P companies including Anadarko in late 2015). In April, it transferred a controlling stake in a unit that holds its overseas assets to two state investment vehicles, in what amounted to a recapitalization after paying big money for assets that have tumbled in value since late 2014. Sinopec and CNPC spent nearly $120 billion on acquisitions between 2009-2013.
