Earlier, Jefferies upgraded CNOOC Ltd. (NYSE: CEO) from Underperform to Hold.

The firm commented, "CNOOC's FY12 earnings came in 3.4% ahead of our estimates, but missed consensus by 2.5%. The company reported 2012 reserve replacement rate of 188%. Management insisted that 2010-15 domestic production would grow at 4-5% CAGR, a rate we had discounted, but given solid reserve replacement, some benefit of the doubt needs to be given. We are raising our target price 6% to HK$13.25 and upgrading our rating to Hold."
