BEIJING, Jan. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Recon Technology, Ltd.

In December 2015, Recon qualified as Class A furnace supplier for PetroChina. The Company has provided its solutions for use in PCOC's various projects. This recent delivery is based on sales contract the Company entered in December 2016 with a total value of RMB2.7 million.
Recon has completed furnace sales contracts in total of RMB20.33 million since the Company commenced providing its products and services in the Changqing oilfield in March 2016.
Mr. Shenping Yin, Chairman and CEO of Recon stated, "We are pleased to complete another delivery of our furnace equipment to Changqing oilfield, and are seeing a trend of more capital spending by larger oil and gas producers in China. We feel the additional procurement from PCOC is a strong verification that Recon's continued investment in R&D in recent years has positioned the Company to take advantage of this trend. We offer a total solution that lowers the ultimate cost and increases efficiency for our customers, which demonstrates real progress in applying our technologies to new industries and applications. We were pleased to see CNOOC Limited's (NYSE: CEO) recent announcement that it plans to increase its capital expenditures for the first time in three years, which reflects many of the trends we are seeing among China's upstream producers. We have worked to diversify our product offering to serve all facets of the oil production and development cycle and feel that we are poised to benefit in 2017 from this increased spending."
