Igor Sechin and Wang Qishan considered the terms of an intergovernmental agreement on the creation of favourable conditions for the construction and operation of a refining and petrochemicals facility as part of the Chinese-Russian Eastern Petrochemical Company (Tianjin) project.

The document will set down conditions for partnership in the construction and operation of the refining and petrochemicals facility so that the target internal rate of return can be achieved on this project. With this aim in mind, China is planning to provide a number of preferences on the government level, including the right to import crude independently, export products independently and sell petroleum products on the Chinese market, as well as other benefits.
