Crude oil will be processed at factories in northwest China to meet the country's needs for petroleum products.

The Company's total supplies to China since 2005 amounted to 442 million tons of oil. Rosneft is the leading oil exporter to PRC, providing 7% of the country’s total demand in raw annually.
