He told that today SinopecCorp’s technological problems are indissolubly tied to the production of high-viscosity oil. “We have considerably increased our potential in terms of processing and developing oil deposits. Moreover, we are among the top global corporations. I think that having strengthened our business contacts, we will take a step towards great development, ”said Hu Wenge.

“We have been developing our friendly contacts with the Chinese company SinopecCorp for several years. As part of a federal project for the training of engineering personnel, we sent representatives of the Russian company TNG to China for an internship. This project has been successfully implemented. Today, we want to give rise to our cooperation, as well as offer ten advanced training programs for the managers and specialists of the Chinese company. In addition, we propose not only mastering our programs, but also creating joint advanced training courses, as well as arranging internships for Russian oil and gas refineries, ”shared Ildus Chukmarov .
