    SINGAPORE, Jan 17 (Reuters) - 
    * Top Chinese energy group CNPC said on Thursday its global
oil
and gas trading unit recorded 12.7 percent growth in pre-tax
profit last year from 2017, and its annual turnover hit 480
million tonnes

    * In 2018, CNPC's trading unit Chinaoil imported 94.17
million
tonnes of crude oil, or about 1.88 million barrels per day,
accounting for 20 percent of China's total crude oil imports
last year, CNPC stated on its website

    * The state energy giant did not provide any profit figures,
year-on-year comparison for crude import volumes or its annual
trade turnover

    * In refined fuel trade, CNPC exported 15.89 million tonnes
in
2018, up 14.5 percent from 2017, breaking into Canadian gasoline
market for the first time and also won a tender to supply jet
fuel to Australia under a term contract, the group said
