BEIJING, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Recon Technology, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RCON) ("Recon" or the "Company"), a leading independent oilfield services provider operating primarily in China, announced today that Beijing BHD Petroleum Technology Co., Ltd. ("BHD"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, received two orders for a total of RMB 2.1 million (~US$0.3 million) from PetroChina's oilfield companies. The first order, dated January 12, 2016, is to supply two heat exchanger units, a major component of furnaces, to PetroChina's Jilin Oilfield for RMB 650 thousand (~US$0.1 million), with a scheduled delivery date of no later than March 15, 2016. The second order, dated January 21, 2016, is to supply two furnaces to PetroChina's Huabei Oilfield for RMB 1.47 million (~US$0.2 million), with a scheduled delivery date of February 29, 2016.
Both orders are part of PetroChina's furnace procurement program (the "Procurement Program") that BHD bided on and for which BHD has received a Class A Furnace Supplier qualification, as was previously announced by the Company on December 14, 2015. These two orders, combined with the RMB 3.22 million (~US$0.5 million) order received from PetroChina's Huabei Oilfield in December 2015, brings the aggregate order value to more than RMB 5.3 million (~US$0.8 million) to date for the Company under the Procurement Program.
Mr. Shenping Yin, Chairman and CEO of Recon, stated, "The Procurement Program, which covers a two year period from October 2015 to September 2017 with expected bids totaling more than RMB 2.9 billion (~US$457 million), provides Recon with an opportunity to boost our furnace business and expand our presence at PetroChina's oilfield companies. We expect to receive more follow-on orders as part of the Procurement Program in coming quarters."
