COPC Responds to Minor Oil Release from Penglai 19-3 Oil Offloading

June 4, 2012

BEIJING - At 11:08pm on June 3, 2012 0.6 cubic meters (approximately 3.8 barrels) of oil was released when a hose coupling parted during regular scheduled oil transfer operations at Peng Lai 19-3 oilfield in Bohai Bay.

The release source was secured immediately when the automatic isolation valves on the coupling closed as designed. No further oil was released.

At daybreak on June 4, 2012 a helicopter air surveillance team identified a single sheen. Oil containment boom has been deployed along with multiple boats and an oil skimming vessel, which are currently on site managing clean-up operations. We expect that clean-up operations will be complete by the end of tomorrow.

The company is investigating the incident to determine what caused the coupling to disconnect. This incident was related to marine hose functions and is not related to the incidents that occurred last year at Peng Lai 19-3. The release source has been secured and there is no further risk to the environment.

The oil was being offloaded in accordance with State Oceanic Administration (SOA) Order 582, which supports limited operations for field depressurization and management.

In the early morning of June 4, 2012 we informed CNOOC, our co-venturer in the Peng Lai 19-3 oilfield, who offered assistance if needed, the SOA and other relevant government agencies.
