At a working session with representatives of the BSR in the central province of Quang Ngai, Hue said the company should focus on risk management and financial administration.

The top legislator noted that the NA Standing Committee has instructed relevant agencies to collect feedback on the draft Petroleum Law, which is expected to be approved by the legislature during its fourth session in October to create a legal framework for the development of the oil and gas industry in the new situation.

Lauding the performance of the BSR, which is responsible for managing and operating the Dung Quat Oil Refinery, Hue said the company has overcome an array of difficulties and challenges to move ahead.

Since it was put into operation more than 10 years ago, Dung Quat has churned out around 80 million tons of products, and contributed over VND 195 trillion (USD 8.33 million) to the State budget.

The BSR has also created stable jobs for more than 1,500 laborers, and contributed over VND 250 billion to social welfare programs nationwide, he said.

The leader also urged PetroVietnam to make more reforms and suggested it prioritize investment in very promising projects, as well as urgent and key ones.  

PetroVietnam needs to work hard to accomplish targets set in the Vietnam Oil and Gas Industry Development Strategy until 2025 with a vision towards 2035, and concertedly implement the project on PetroVietnam restructuring, he said.-(VNA/VLLF)
