("PetroChina") for the fifth and seventh consecutive year, respectively.

PetroChina's and Sinopec's Class 1 supplier requirements are extremely stringent. In addition to sufficient production capacity and a strict quality management system to ensure product quality, Class 1 suppliers are required to adhere to timely delivery schedules and strict service standards.
