Tesla Motor chief Elon Musk is set to meet with China’s largest refiner Sinopec Group to discuss possible cooperation on building charging units during his visit to the country next week.

A Sinopec official confirmed Musk’s visit with Sinopec to China Daily and said that a senior level official with Sinopec will meet with Musk next week to discuss building charging units at Sinopec’s nationwide service-station network.

The source said no details have yet been confirmed, China Daily said.

China Daily said that Sinopec announced in February that it will open 30 percent of its oil products sales business, including more than 30,000 gas stations, to private and social capital, as part of a restructuring reform.

The newspaper also said that Tesla has confirmed it will deliver its first car to a Chinese customer next week.
