BEIJING - China's National Energy Administration said Friday that it approved in December the second phase of an overall development plan for the Penglai 19-3 and Penglai 25-6 oil fields in northern Bohai Bay.
The Penglai 19-3 field, which is operated by ConocoPhillips' (COP) China unit and 51percent-owned by Cnooc Ltd. (CEO), was ordered by China's State Oceanic Administration to halt production in September 2011 after it spilled 3,345 barrels of oil and oil-based drilling mud into the ocean.
