CITIC Resources Holdings Ltd., a Hong Kong-headquartered natural resources and commodities provider, and Japan's ITOCHU Corp. signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on upstream oil and gas exploration and production projects.

The MOU outlines "future collaboration in the potential joint acquisition of prime exploration and production assets, and will underpin and form a part of the strategic alliance between the groups," ITOCHU said in a press release Wednesday.
