Helping to Improve Worker Refinery Safety in China

Together with Petrochina Tarim Oilfield Company, DuPont Sustainable Solutions is helping improve refinery safety in China.


In order to properly meet the energy demands of China and the rest of the world, the Tarim basin of Xinjiang province in Northwest China faces a unique challenge. While maintaining growth of its oil output, it also must assure refinery safety and the safety of its workforce. Through collaboration with DuPont Sustainable Solutions, Tarim Oilfield Company was able to develop and implement a world-class safety culture of its own.

At the Tazhong oil field, we hear An Wenhua, the Vice General Manager of Petrochina Tarim Oilfield Company, discuss the high level of risk associated with work at an oil refinery.  DuPont Sustainable Solutions worked with the company to jointly find solutions to the challenges the oil field faced.

As a result, safety at the oil field is much more stable than before.  Based on actual experience and practice, not just theoretical concepts, DuPont consultants are helping the oilfield achieve a much improved safety record and create a sustainable safety culture for years to come.
