•                developed or was not under development, and completed natural gas asset ratings and asset/block                 future block acquisition.
• Applied the latest drilling data from the Benoy, Mbaikoro, and Mouroumar Blocks in Chad and used pre-stacking inversion to improve the accuracy of thin-layer reservoir predictions. By adding parameters such as lithology, porosity, and water saturation, CPC was able to update 3D models and reservoir predictions.
• Integrated its paleontological data, sequence stratigraphic interpretation of well logs, and structural seismic interpretation to complete a tectonostratigraphic model of the Tainan basin.
• The production of natural gas wells in Taiwan often faces disruption due to liquid accumulation. Therefore, CPC has attempted to increase production by adopting foam-lift and has completed lab trials of this method with positive results. CPC is drafting a plan for on-site trials and expects to start on-site trails in 2023.
• Collaborated with the Central Geological Survey, MOEA, to conduct a geothermal exploration in the Matsao area of the Tatun Mountains. The exploration well is targeted to be 1,350 meters in depth and is expected to reach the target depth in June 2023. It will be used to collect core samples, drill cuttings, and water samples for further analysis.
• Completed downhole mineral analysis for three wells at Xiaoyoukeng, Qingtiangang, and Zhugaoling in the Tatun Mountains and constructed a well-tie cross section.
• The report “Research and Economic Analysis of Acid-Resistant Casing Alloys for Datun Volcanic Geothermal Development” was completed. The results will be used to further develop geothermal power at Mt. Datun.
• Investigation of potential sites for carbon sequestration off the west coast of Taiwan: CPC completed                 overall survey in June 2023 and then to narrow down the potential targets for further research in the next phase.
• Geologic sequestration of carbon dioxide: CPC regularly measures the concentration of CO2 and methane, and their carbon isotopes, in the atmosphere and soil at potential sequestration sites to establish base-line data. After analysis, CPC found that the results are similar to global CO2 levels in the atmosphere. In the future, CPC will establish continuous monitoring stations, automatically sending measurement data.
• Simulation of carbon sequestration: CPC simulated the injecting of gases at potential sites, setting the start year of 2025 and running the simulation for a hundred years. The simulation showed that there would be no gas leakage and that sequestration will be safe. Such results can serve as a reference for future development.
• Developing green and sustainable remediation technologies using microorganisms and plants for remediating in-situ oil-contaminated soil. The model will be applied to remediation engineering in the 
• Using ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to investigate underground pipelines. The technology is used                 breaches where oil theft has taken place.
• Completed site remediation of the Hsinchu distribution center and gas stations in Shengang, Changhua. Assisted in drafting pollution control plans for the Songshan Airport gas stations.
• Constructed a mobile lab which can analyze soil, gas, and groundwater samples on-site, reducing                 
Refining & Manufacturing Research Institute
• Developed new production processes, including the preliminary assessment of a new light diesel engine motor oil formulation to meet the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) C3 5W/30 standards; the development and application of CPC amorphous soft carbon anode vehicular           graphite; development of environmentally-friendly precision machinery cutting oil; the development of styrene recycling technology; the establishment of alicyclic polycarboxylate hydrogenation
