Chinese offshore oil and gas specialist CNOOC Ltd said on Wednesday it will "significantly" reduce capital spending this year amid sharply lower global oil prices.

The state-backed energy company saw limited impact on its operations from the coronavirus outbreak in the first quarter and its February oil and gas production were higher than a year earlier, a top company executive told a media briefing.

The firm also said it is studying a plan to acquire the natural gas terminal assets of its parent company.
