BEIJING, Jan 25 (Reuters) - China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC) processed 191 million tonnes (3.82 million barrels per day) of crude oil in 2012, up 6.6 percent from the previous year, the country's second-largest refiner said on Friday.
Oil product sales climbed 6.2 percent to 163 million tonnes last year, while natural gas sales rose 17.8 percent to 101.2 billion cubic metres, the company said on its website (www.cnpc.com.cn).
Top Asian refiner Sinopec said this week its crude throughput was 221.31 million tonnes (4.43 million bpd) in 2012, up 1.8 percent from 2011, a pace roughly half of its earlier target of 3.5 percent.
China's refinery throughput rose 3.7 percent to 9.36 million bpd last year, slower than that of 2011 as demand in the world's second-largest oil user eased with a slowing economy, official data has showed.
