Oil giant subsidiary 'refusing to pay sewage bill'

A subsidiary of China's leading oil refiner Sinopec in Nanjing, capital of the eastern province of Jiangsu, has been accused of refusing to pay more than 80 million yuan (US$12.62 million) in sewage treatment charges.

Sinopec Nanjing Chemical Industries Co Ltd is in arrears for sewage treatment charges for four years. Despite final call notices from authorities, it still refused to pay, citing financial difficulties, an unnamed official with the water authority said yesterday.

The Nanjing water supply and conservation office has posted 10 tweets on microblogging website urging the company to pay up.

Nanjing water authority officials visited the company dozens of times, along with local finance department staff, but Nanjing Chemical Industries has publicly remained silent.

In its tweets, the water authority said the chemical plant didn't pay sewage bills in 2006 and from 2009 to 2011. It posted photocopies of the final demand notices issued to the company.

It is also reported that Nanjing Chemical Industries has turned in a report to the Nanjing municipal government, hoping to settle the dispute as soon as possible.

In earlier media reports, the company claimed that it had serious financial problems.
