In terms of production and operation, with adjusted crude oil inventory strategy and increased chemical units load, the ethylene production broke through 1.2MT, creating the best-ever profits for the Company and realizing the first time shareholders dividends. At the same time, it had been vigorously developing the domestic and international markets, with jet fuel successfully sold to the international market and naphtha etc. chemical feedstock imported for the first time, which further expanded the import and export channels for feedstock and product. The Company would further optimize management, improve unit reliability, and bring the advantage of integrated refining and chemical to full play.

Ms. Karen McKee fully recognized the excellent performance and best ever profit that the company had achieved, and appreciated OOP for their unremitting efforts. She said that the key focus areas and priorities mentioned by Mr. Emmen were in line with her views. Safety comes the first. Based on this concept, FREP’s safety performance had witnessed significant improvement, including the increased number of reported near misses, which helped good risk management; the effective operation of OIMS2.1 risk identification and management facilitated the formation of a positive management mode to identify and remove risks dynamically; the effective implementation of last minute risk assessment improved safety awareness of the whole organization and effective management on risks.
Ms. Karen McKee and her company highly praised the Company’s achievements in reliability management. They expected that the Company could keep focusing on safety and reliability, and maintain good financial performance, and look forward to further strengthening the cooperation between shareholders, so as to enhance the Company’s performance and profitability.
