Although PetroChina is the most profitable company in Asia, this success may be the result of corporate management, but can also be attributed to the near duopoly on the wholesale and retail business of oil products it shares with Sinopec in China. A true duopoly is a specific type of Oligopoly where only two producers exist in one Market. Sinopec, or the China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (,) () is one of the major Petroleum companies in China.
Because of its link to Sudan through parent company CNPC, several institutional investors such as Harvard and Yale decided, in 2005, to divest from Sinopec. Sudan (officially the Republic of Sudan) ( السودان al-Sūdān is a country in northeastern Africa. Sudan divestment efforts have continued to be concentrated on PetroChina since then.

Bohai Bay ( is one of the three bays forming the Bohai Gulf, the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea, in northeastern China.

Although PetroChina is promoting safety, environmental protection and people-orientation as its slogan and is determined to encourage efficiency in utilization of resource as well as effective operation of the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) management system as a method to reduce emission of pollutants, environmental-related news about PetroChina has been often negative.
Petrochina had a huge chemical spill in November, 2005. PetroChina Company Limited () (,) is a Chinese oil company and is the listed arm of state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC Mainland One of its chemical plants exploded in Jilin, China. The blast poured 100 tons of benzene, which is a carcinogen and highly toxic, into the Songhua River. There was a slick of chemicals that spanned 80km.  Harbin, which is another city along the Songhua River, had to cut the water supply from almost 4 million people, for 5 days. More than 60 people have been injured, one person is missing, and five have died, due to this incident.  The spill prompted China’s environmental agency to fine the company one million yuan (approximately $125,000, £64,000) for its pollution, which is the maximum fine that can be handed out in China for breaking an environmental law.  However, this disaster has now sparked controversy about this law. People are claiming it is too soft.  The spill even crept into Kharbosvk, Russia, where residents stocked up on bottled water. The city tried filtering its water of toxic substances, but officials were still unsure if the water was 100% safe for drinking.  The Chinese government has said it will take more than one billion dollars to clean up the aftermath.  Li Zhaoxing, Chinese Foreign Minister at the time, issued a public apology to Russia due to the incident. 
Another major controversial issue is PetroChina’s development in gas reserves in Tarim Basins, Tibet. It is now constructing a pipeline across Tibet to Gansu province in China, eventually lead to Shanghai. It is argued that such a project might pose a threat to the environment, as the construction of the pipeline might affect the wildlife in the regions where it runs through. Also, the exiled Tibetan government argued that such project is part of China’s strategy to consolidate political control of the Western Regions in China, including Tibet. However, no known environmental or social impact assessments have been conducted, as the environmental record of Tarim Basins is very poor. 
Approved in 2007, a $5. 5 billion petrochemical plant, expected to produce 800,000 tons of ethylene and refine 10 million tons of crude oil a year, is now under construction by PetroChina in Chengdu, provincial capitol of Sichuan in Southwestern China. Ethylene is widely used in the production of goods such as packaging and trash liners. Although the project claimed that $565 million of the total investment would be dedicated to environmental protection, residents of Chengdu who believe it might bring pollution to the local area took to the streets on May 3 and 4, 2008, to protest against the project. The whole demonstration was peaceful, and presence of Chinese government's intervention was scarce.
