Last year, the company completed contracts worth US$1.21 billion with a profit of US$460 million.

Liu Jinxin, general manager of Sinopec International Petroleum Service Corp., said the company's engineering teams had finished 236 contracts, or 72.8 percent of the signed total, in 30 countries in the first half of 2008.

He said Sinopec's engineering business was growing steadily in Africa, Middle East, South and Central America.
