Description of Services:

China University of Petroleum (UPC) is an important base of high-level talents education for petroleum and petrochemical industry. Our group in UPC focuses on the research of the direct methane conversion, especially on the selective oxidation of methane into liquid oxidation products (e.g. methanol, formic acid). We see this as an opportunity and solution for the methane generated from local, on-site applications, such as off-gas at remote oil-extraction facilities. We will seek to work with our growing partners in China, that is five leading petroleum and petrochemical companies (CNPC, SINOPEC, CNOOC, CHINA SHENHUA and YANCHANG PETROLEUM), to turn the wasted resources problem into an economic boom. We hope that the solutions are developed to be both practical and sustainable over the long term.
