Our energy projects started with MSP/DRILEX based in Houston, Texas – serving the oil, gas and process industries. We translated oilfield tool manuals, instructions, and technical documents from English to Chinese. Later, more companies selected us as their translation supplier - Sinopec, BP, SHELL, CNOOC, and SCICL. Our areas expanded into a full spectrum of Energy industry including oil, gas, coal, solar, nuclear, wind power, and hydro-electricity.

Right people are always the key to high quality translations. We deploy hundreds of Masters & Doctorate freelance translators, editors and proofreaders to work on professional materials guaranteeing the expertise. In Energy sector, apart from in-house translators, we use top resources from the China University of Petroleum, China University of Mining & Technology, and other accredited universities/institutes. This has proved to be a successful model.

Case Study

Shaanxi Coal Industry Co., Ltd. (SCICL) (Shaanxi Coal shares) is the only provincial mining company in Shaanxi, Mainland China that integrates production, transportation and sales. SCICL is formed by Shaanxi Coal Chemical Group Corporation, China Three Gorges Corporation, industrial city of Mianyang Science & Technology Investment Funds, Huaneng International Power Development Corporation, Shaanxi Non-ferrous Metal Group Company, China Cinda Asset Management Corporation, Shaanxi Yellow River Mining Corporation, and Shaanxi Blower Corporation. Its total capital is 9 billion shares.

Project Outline
When SCICL planned to invest coal deposits in Australia with Australian counterparts, there are tons of materials to be translated into Chinese for the evaluation by Chinese authorities. The first project included 10 books with over 5000 pages, with Australian companies' details, property details, coal seam analysis, mine plan maps, plants introduction, sales & marketing potential, financial analysis, and legal documents.
