Sinopec Group corporate report

Sinopec Group corporate report

Report summary

Sinopec's greater exposure to downstream has seen it outperform during the oil price downturn. Sinopec Corp successfully de-leveraged its balance sheet through a focus on cost reduction and portfolio management. But cost cutting has impacted growth prospects. Domestic oil output decline has accelerated and we expect total Group production will peak in 2017. Sinopec faces a tough balancing act over the next couple of years if it is to address the underlying weaknesses in its upstream business. Efforts to keep costs down will have to be weighed up against a need to address increasing portfolio maturity.
