Expanse of sand dunes of Xinjiang Taklamakan desert in China is rich in oil and gas resources. From 1951, oil and gas exploration has been through a long and arduous exploration journey. In 1989, under the strategy guidelines of "stabilizing the east and developing the western" of oil development in the country, a massive oil battle in Tarim Basin was set off. In 1999, Antonoil, grasping the historic opportunity to deepen reform and development of the oil industry, took the first step of hard work in this magical land.
From 1999 to 2002, Antonoil experienced a difficult start-up phase, at which time the whole company had only a dozen individuals. While just setting foot on the Tarim Basin, and having not enough time to enjoy the harvest, we quickly moved the headquarters to Beijing and opened a new era of national strategy.
As the situation of the industry changes, Antonoil expanded strategic vision, quickly began team building to create professional managers culture and establish a stable core management team marching towards the organization and scientific group mode. Antonoil sent oil executives and business teams around the country, thus business territory gradually spreading in the country. Anton people could find a space to show its mettle, but they are never complacent, they made sustained hard efforts towards more sophisticated strategy to enter the higher point. Meanwhile, under the guidance of strategic decision of transferring from pipe materials service enterprise to oil and gas technology service enterprise, Antonoil culture began to take form, establishing the corporate mission to create maximum value for customers and putting forward the cultural purposes of "to help others succeed, so that we ourselves can be successful ". Inspiring "Anton words" first emerged in this period and it also became the actions aim of Anton people.

Each year the company selected "Golden Ant" award in recognition of employees who are hardworking, dedicated, neglecting personal gains and outstanding employees. Along with business development, Anton people had more respect for the accumulation of "a ton of oil" spirit, which means that the ultimate goal of our work is through the development of its own technology and the accumulation of per drop of oil, enabling benefit customers and benefit people's livelihood. The company's annual award "one ton of oil" award is aimed in recognition of the company's most outstanding professional and technical personnel.
Anton ants use their own hands to create Antonoil brand height, and use their own moral to refine the thickness of Antonoil culture! By the end of 2006, one dressed in overalls and wearing helmets ant mascot emerged. In the same year, Antonoil successful cooperated with foreign investors.

2009 was a memorable year, in the financial turmoil, crude oil prices fell sharply, and oilfield services industry faced the coldest winter ever. In the face of enormous difficulties, Anton ants, in a more pragmatic attitude, threw themselves into their own work. Antonoil was confident to gain a leading position in the industry, and we must establish a reasonable mechanism for talented people. It has established Antonoil scholarships in China University of Petroleum, Southwest Petroleum University and many other oil institutions, holding large-scale recruitment of graduating students for several years to cultivate new force and copy "army ants" so as to inject fresh blood to Antonoil.
In 2010, Antonoil was eleven years old, and from start-up, it has experienced the sufferings of growing and joy of success, experiencing a very exciting decade. In 2010, after a bleak economic environment, the world was undergoing tremendous change, and a new round of industry consolidation was under way.
