Import licensing requirement

On March 2nd, 2016, the Chinese government announced it was approving Dongyin Qirun Chemical Industry Co.,Ltd. as a licensed non-state crude oil importer.

Such licenses started being granted in mid-2015 as a result of a policy opening up the crude oil importing industry to independent retailers (see related act).

Licensees must agree to a minimum annual import demand of 50,000 tonnes of crude oil (among other requirements).
