Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh asked the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam) to maintain its leading role and turn itself into a powerful international corporation.
The Party leader made the request during a reception for those individuals and units of the energy group who have achieved outstanding results in the campaign “Studying and following Ho Chi Minh’s moral examples” in Hanoi on August 20.
He spoke highly of PetroVietnam’s efforts to combine the implementation of the drive with its production and business activities, thus forming emulation movements within the sector.
PetroVietnam has successfully upheld its role as the country’s driving economic force, maintaining steady production and business growth, ensuring social security, and serving as a tool to manage the macro-economy and help protect Vietnam ’s sovereignty over territorial waters, he said.
Leaders of PetroVietnam reported that the group has already completed ahead of schedule a number of key national oil and gas projects thanks to emulation drives initiated by the movement.
They cited the commercial operations of the power plants Ca Mau 1 and 2 and Nhon Trach 1 as examples, noting that the Dung Quat oil refinery - a symbol of the country’s petro-chemistry industry – produced the first batch of commercial products on schedule.
In addition, other major projects such as the Nghi Son and the southern oil refinery complexes have got off to a good start, they said./.
