He was the general manager and then chairman of the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), before being appointed the Director of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission in March 2013.

In September 2013, Jiang was abruptly removed from his post and came under investigation for corruption or abuse of power, along with four other senior oil executives.[1] Jiang was considered an ally of former security chief Zhou Yongkang. Eventually, in June 2014, he was expelled from the Communist Party of China.[2] Jiang was a member of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.

Biography[edit]

Jiang Jiemin graduated from Shandong University in Industrial Economics Management.[3] He is a senior economist and holds a master's degree. Jiang joined the Communist Party of China in August 1976.

Jiang was made Deputy Director of the Shengli Petroleum Administration Bureau in March 1993, Senior Executive of the Qinghai Petroleum Administration Bureau in June 1994 and Director of Qinghai Petroleum Administration Bureau in November 1994, and Assistant to the General Manager and the team leader in charge of the preparation for the initial public offering of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) in February 1999, and a then Director and Vice President of PetroChina, a subsidiary of CNPC, in November 1999.

Jiang was appointed Deputy Governor of the Qinghai Province in June 2000, was made a member of the provincial Party Standing Committee of Qinghai Province and Vice Governor of Qinghai in November 2000, and then became Deputy Party Secretary of Qinghai in June 2003. He became the Deputy General Manager of CNPC in April 2004 and Vice Chairman and President of PetroChina in May 2004. Jiang was named General Manager of CNPC in November 2006 and the Chairman of our PetroChina in May 2007. In May 2008, he stepped down as the President of PetroChina.[4][5]

Jiang was an alternate member of the 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, and a full member of the 18th Central Committee.[6]

Jiang was reported to have faced unusual public criticism from small investors after PetroChina's share price fell sharply due partly to the government's control of retail fuel prices. The Times noted that he was a key figure in "China's determined expansion of its energy empire overseas."[7] An In November 2012, an 'exclusive' from the South China Morning Post reported that in the aftermath of the Ferrari death of Ling Gu, the 23-year-old son of top presidential aide Ling Jihua, Jiang wired hush money from the company's accounts to the families of the two women who were accompanying Ling Gu at the time of his death.[8]

On September 1, 2013, Jiang was detained by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the party's top anti-graft agency, suspected of corruption. He was removed from his post as SASAC chairman. It was widely speculated that Jiang Jiemin's case was part of a bigger corruption probe whose ultimate target was former Politburo Standing Committee member Zhou Yongkang. Jiang (after former Sichuan deputy party chief Li Chuncheng) was the second high-ranking official associated with Zhou detained following the 18th Party Congress. On June 30, 2014, Jiang was expelled from the Communist Party of China. The party investigation concluded that Jiang "abused his power for the illicit gain of others, solicited and received massive bribes." His case was moved to judicial authorities for prosecution.[9]
