China Petroleum and Chemical Corp, also known as Sinopec, struck sizable oil and gas flows in the deepest oil and gas well in Asia, a major milestone in the country's exploration of deep energy resources, according to the company on Wednesday.  

The Yuejin 3-3XC well of the Shendi-1 project in the Tarim Basin of northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, achieved a daily crude production of 200 metric tons and natural gas of 50,000 cubic meters, a record for the deepest oil and gas well in Asia.  

With a depth of 9,432 meters, the breakthrough marks significant advances in the exploration of oil and gas resources in ultra-deep areas in China, the company said.  

According to Sinopec, it began drilling the well on May 1 this year and completed on Oct. 26.
