PetroVietnam protests CNOOC's illegal operation of drilling rig in Vietnamese waters

On 2nd May 2014, the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) positioned the drilling rig HD-981 in a location of 15°29’ North latitude, 111° 12’ East longitude, approximately 120 nautical miles from Vietnam’s waters, within the exclusive economic zone and continental shelf of Vietnam. CNOOC’s action violated Vietnam’s sovereign and jurisdiction rights under the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea

On 4th May 2014, PetroVietnam has sent a letter to the President and CEO of CNOOC strongly opposing the action and resolutely demanding that the Corporation cease the illegal actions immediately and move the HD-981 drilling rig out of Vietnam’s waters.

 

The above action of CNOOC was against the cooperative spirit between the two national oil and gas groups, practice of international oil activities as well as the motto of friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and China.

 

PetroVietnam requested CNOOC not to recur similar actions.
