World largest oil company praises co-op with China

Saudi Arabia's leading oil firm is looking to step up supplies to and cooperation with China in anticipation of an emergence from the global economic slowdown.

Jum'ah said,"We think China is one of the biggest growth markets of oil in the world," also chief executive officer of Saudi Aramco, which manages the world's largest proven oil reserves and is the world's largest producer of crude oil.

"We're very happy with the cooperation, and we're very happy with all the deals that we have done with our friends in China. The deals are beneficial for both parties."

The cooperation mainly embraces direct oil supply to and joint ventures in China, China's corporate presence in gas exploration in Saudi Arabia and Chinese engineering contracts for Saudi Arabia.

Since Saudi Aramco began to supply crude oil to China in 1990, it has become the biggest oil supplier to China, Abdallah Jum'ah said.

In 2006, the company signed a memorandum of understanding with Sinopec, China's largest oil refiner. Under the accord, China will increase its imports from the Saudi producer up to 1 million barrels a day (50 million tons a year) by 2010.

"We're supplying China with around 750,000 barrels per day," said Jum'ah. Beyond 2010, his company would continue to supply China with its requirements. "2010 is not a time for the memorandum to come to an end," he added. He reckoned it would supply 1 million barrels a day thereafter.

The Saudi company also established, with Exxon Mobile as partner, with Sinopec in June 2007 a joint-venture oil refinery and petrochemical complex project in the eastern province of Fujian.

"We are very happy with the outcome, and we're looking forward to the upgrade of the refinery and completion of the construction of the petrochemical complex in the first quarter of 2009," he said.

His company was talking with a Sinopec subsidiary about another joint-venture refinery project in Qingdao, a coastal city in the eastern province of Shandong, with agreement yet to be reached.

In terms of cooperation in Saudi Arabia, Jum'ah said, "Sinopec is our partner now in a gas exploration project in Saudi Arabia. The oil exploration in Saudi Arabia is restricted to Saudi Aramco."

He said many Chinese companies were helping his company in construction, information technology and drilling.

The projects that would enable the company to produce 12 million barrels a day by the end of 2009 would not be affected by the economic slowdown.

Even though the demand is going to be lower, the company always kept 1.5million to 2 million barrels per day of extra capacity as a cushion, so as to maintain the stability of the world oil market in accordance with Saudi government policy, said Jum'ah.

"With the slowing demand in the short term, we may have 3 million barrels of additional capacity at the end of 2009." His company was confident that demand would pick up, and it would be keeping the cushion, so that the world would not see any economic upheavals caused by instability in oil supplies, he added.

He dismissed concerns over oil prices which have fallen about 60 percent from the peak of $130 to $140 a barrel in July, saying the sustainability and stability of the market were more important. "There was no reason for the oil price to reach $130 to $140 because there was no shortage of oil at that time. The market was well supplied, and our customers were not requesting more oil."

At the end of October, OPEC slashed daily crude oil production by 1.5 million barrels so as to stabilize the falling oil price. Jum'ah said Saudi Arabia would cut output in line with one third of the OPEC oil reduction requirement, that was to say 500,000 barrels a day.
