According to Reuters, the discovery was made at the company's Changqing field at the Ordos Basin in the western province of Shaanx.
State owned CNPC said the discovery holds over 100 million tons of oil, or more than 733 million barrels, but has not disclosed the exact size of the find or a recoverable resources estimate.
